Spiritual Care
“Quality of Care” in a long-term care facility (nursing home) must include spiritual care.

Respecting Residents
A resident in a long-term care facility is no less valuable to God than any other person.  We reject the practice of euthanasia regardless of a person’s, physical, mental or spiritual condition.

Jesus’ Preeminence
We respect all residents and their right to choose their own religious beliefs, but encourage them to examine and grow in their relationship to Jesus Christ.

Real Relationships
Caring relationships are essential to providing quality spiritual care.

Qualifications to provide Christian services
We hold that only born-again Christians are qualified to provide quality, Christ-centered spiritual care.  Our board members, staff and the volunteers whom we recruit, train or support should live fruitful lives in Jesus the Christ as exemplified in John 13:34-35, John 15:5-13 and Galatians 5:22-23a.

We believe it is God’s will for us to avoid partnership with anyone who embraces the practices which Jesus or His Apostles spoke against.  Such as those mentioned in Mark 7:21-23, 1Corinthians 6:9-10, Galatians 5:19-21 and Colossians 3:5-9

Mission Field
Ministry to long-term care facility residents is a valid mission field.  We consider the committed, Christian volunteers to be missionaries.  We also encourage, mentor & support all like-minded ministries.

Prayer
Prayer is foundational to the success of God Cares Ministry.
