The Gideons International is an inter-denominational ministry with offices around the world in 15 National Association countries.
Our single objective is to win people for Christ by personally sharing our faith and distributing God’s Word around the world. As born-again believers, we believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. We accept the Biblical standard of marriage being between one man and one woman. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the eternal Son of God, we have received Him as Savior, and endeavor to follow Him in our daily lives.
Our Core Values
Innovation & Creative Thinking
We will manage ideas so they become practice. We will work to possess an understanding of the creative process. We will seek out and implement new processes to drive progress.
We will follow through and deliver on our commitments. We will coach each other and hold each other accountable. We will share a sense of urgency and take appropriate action in difficult situations. We understand that being accountable means taking responsibility for your work, your actions and for yourself.
We will be free to effectively express ideas to others regardless of position. We are capable of giving and receiving feedback while remaining logical and receptive. We are committed to the “Go Direct” principle to preempt and resolve issues.
Trust and Respect for the Individual
We will value every individual for his or her contribution. We will ask for and allow people to openly express their thoughts and opinions. We will not just tolerate, but openly embrace and understand the richness of our differences. We will implement the ground rules of trust with all those with whom we interact.
