1. Intimacy With The Holy Spirit:
There can never be true spirituality without a personal intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. We are committed to raising pastors, leaders and a people who personally know the Holy Spirit. Not as a theology, but in their personal experiences. Any notable, remarkable and mighty acts and ministry in life are a direct reflection of the presence, the power and the blessings of the Holy Spirit.
2. Practical Peace And Holiness:
Salem means peace. This is our Jesus – centered heritage. We are committed to raising a people who are committed to a life style of peace and holiness. This is how to serve the Lord here on earth and see God practically. Hebrews 12:14 says; “Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:”
3. Faith And Wisdom:
Practical spirituality forms the bedrock of our very existence. We are raising people who are strong in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ. A people committed to a life of faith that pleases the Lord. Hebrews 11:6 says; “But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
A people committed to a life of practical wisdom that will guarantee their heritage on earth. Proverbs 9:9-12 says; “Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning. The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [is] understanding. For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but [if] thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear [it].”
We are committed to raising a people who are spiritually receptive and teachable for that is the mark of Godly wisdom.
4. Confidence and Positive Mentality:
We are raising a people who are expected to exhibit a carriage, attitude, habits and character, that reflect confidence and dignity at all levels through the mode of communication, interaction and general conduct. We are expected to see ourselves as persons of worth and value, recognizing our uniqueness as individuals with a positive mindset devoid of any trace of inferiority but a strong belief of who we are in Christ and a strong belief in this ministry as well as articulating our core purpose as individuals and a possibility mindedness directed towards its positive achievement and contribution.
5. Capacity Building:
We are committed to raising a people who themselves show commitment to a life style of continuous studies and personal development, striving to be continuously relevant to the overall Vision requirement of the ministry as well as its core mission, goals and objectives. You must constantly improve and develop yourself by reading wide, openness to learning new skills and taking onboard new information is a trait expected of Salemites. Thus, in order to cause a robustness and depth in the quality of your output in life.
A man may rise to the top by craftiness, but only integrity can keep him at the top. Salemites worldwide are therefore expected to demonstrate honesty, uprightness and trustworthiness at all times. You must ensure that you are accountable person, whose word is your bond, transparent and open in all your dealings and holding truth as a virtue at all times, particularly in conduct. This is branding the core values of the ministry. Integrity in matters of conduct in your interaction, relationships and job, obeying the rules and regulations for leadership is of God, being spiritually sound, morally upright and having a good conscience.
Doing the right thing at the right time and for the right reasons is one of the values of life we want Salemites worldwide to hold dear. We are committed to inculcating a sense of responsibility in ourselves. We expect you to do what is right at all times. We believe in the place of discipline for effective leadership, responding to issues as demanded not as convenient. Salemites are not just permitted to do what they like but what is right. Punctuality and prompt response to assignments is a mark of responsibility. Doing what is right, not just what you like is a mark of honour.
Only the diligent eventually stand before Kings, therefore, Salemites worldwide are expected to be strongly committed to a diligent work life style. We extol the virtues of hard work and deliver qualitative output and constantly strive towards excellent attainment of high standards in all we do. We believe that commitment is the greatest qualifier for attainment, hence our celebration of this trait in preparing Salemites for leadership responsibilities for generations to come
Going up requires giving up something. We are raising Salemites worldwide to know that life is in phases. The phase you are today requires giving up pursuit of some extra-ordinary pleasure so you can go up in life and ministry. You are to relax and enjoy the phase that God has brought you, but pursuits of extra-ordinary pleasure sometimes deny people of real establishment in life. This is sacrifice. Sacrifice is the ultimate price for outstanding leadership. It is the quality of sacrifice that defines great leadership. We therefore expect Salemites worldwide to go the extra-mile, paying the extra- price in the attainment of their set goals. Raising an altar of sacrifice in pursuit of your dreams is what must distinguish and define Salemites worldwide.
10. Living Ready, Rapturable And Rewardable:
We are raising a people who are not carnal in life and casual to the Lord. The only way to avoid being a spiritual casualty is to stop being carnal in the things of the spirit. We are raising a people living ready for the rapture, working hard for God to be rewarded and living every day with eternity in mind. This is why we are Salemites.
