We have 3 ‘distinctives’ which define our unique calling as a YWAM ministry:
1. Mobilizing Catholics and other Christians to reach the Unreached
Kerygma strongly embraces what Pope John Paul II called the “New Evangelization”, which includes evangelizing baptized Catholics. In addition, we believe in the importance of reaching out to people who, for one reason or another, have never had the opportunity to hear the Gospel message. Encouraging lay Catholics to be involved in reaching out to those who have never heard the Gospel is relatively new in our era. All of our activities are meant to directly or indirectly lead to equipping the believer to reach the nations.
2. Facilitating Protestants to serve in the Catholic World
In the past, Catholics have often joined Protestant-initiated programs and projects. We also believe that God desires Protestants to be able to serve some Catholic-initiated endeavours. Kerygma wants to help facilitate this.
3. Facilitating Catholics and Protestants collaborating to build God’s Kingdom
We believe that true Christian unity not only entails mutual respect and appreciation but also partnering together to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). Part of Kerygma’s bridge-building call is to help facilitate this partnership.
