At Twelve21, we subject our lives to the truth of Scripture, and we rely on God through prayer. God provides what is necessary to carry out the mission that He has given us. Without constant reliance on God through prayer and obedience to His Word, we can do nothing.
Our work is focused on the church – the bride of Christ – from beginning to end. Everything we do revolves around the local church. We engage with and encourage existing churches to plant new churches among the unreached and unengaged. We then equip the newly planted churches to disciple new believers to do the work of ministry.
Christian visionaries see the immediate future in light of eternity. We see the day when the people of God from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation will be gathered around the throne of heaven, worshipping Him. Keeping our eyes on this vision, we are adaptable and flexible, gladly changing methods when appropriate.
Because lost people matter to God, they matter to us. We go to serve, not to be served. We work where the gospel is least known because we have been commanded to do so, and because people’s ultimate need is to find eternal life through a personal relationship with God.
Character and competence are both indispensable. No one starts with complete maturity or fully developed skills. Through lifelong learning and development, we increase our effectiveness and become what God already knows we can be. We seek to empower everyone at Twelve21 to reach his or her full potential.
People are our most valuable asset. We at Twelve21 relate to each other in a community characterized by unity, trust, acceptance, and diversity, linking arms with God’s people wherever we find them. We are accountable to one another, evaluating ourselves regularly. The more we are a caring community, the more we demonstrate peace and brotherhood to a world torn apart by divisive hatred.
