What a person believes is the foundation for life and ministry.
The purpose of the mission trip is for participants to grow in a relationship with Christ and in doing so to be better equipped to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of their patients.
The commitment of the mission trip is to "serve and not to be served." CMMA has, therefore, established some guidelines to help everyone obtain this goal.
1. Due to the number of students, conditions of project, and foreign culture, our students, physicians and staff will need to set aside some of their personal preferences, habits, and schedule to fulfill the mission of the project.
2. CMMA is an inter-denominational ministry that uses Holy Scripture as its sole authority. We understand that there are variations in practice and understanding of Scripture in some areas of Christian living. In order to provide an environment that is conducive to meeting the above purpose, participants will agree to abide by the standards of CMMA in areas such as dress, entertainment, activities, etc. We expect participants to not engage in alcohol, drug, or tobacco use and to be a willing participant in all cultural, regional, church, and group activities with sensitivity to cultural and biblical standards.
3. Participants will seek to provide excellent medical care and to represent Jesus Christ.
