The Mission is unchanging, and an expression of Christ’s mission in the university context. The Vision are two goals we are shooting for as a Fellowship to 2025. The Values express our shared commitments in theology and ministry as we undertake the Mission together.
In prayerful dependence on God, AFES proclaims Jesus Christ at university to present everyone mature in Him, by building student groups that evangelise, encourage, train and send.
In prayerful dependence upon God, by December 2025, we long to:
AFES rests on the saving and transforming riches of God’s grace freely given through a personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
AFES values expository Bible teaching and study, Biblical theology, and humble submission to the Bible to shape our mission, message, and methods of ministry.
AFES values being a national movement united in the gospel as reflected in our Doctrinal Basis, and values the freedom to conduct our Mission with local distinctiveness.
AFES values every activity in our mission as an opportunity to train others through modelling godly character, convictions and competency, particularly through apprenticeships.
AFES values students leading our mission through partnership with long-term, campus-based AFES staff.
AFES values our partnerships in the cause of the gospel on campus with supporters, graduates, churches.
AFES values local churches as the primary expression of the body of Christ, and so values every student and staff-member having a love for, and a committed involvement in, a local church.
AFES is committed to raising up and sending disciple-making disciples for global mission in partnership with local churches and mission agencies.
