Centrality of Word of God

For UESI, the Word of God shall be the touchstone. It provides the standards and light for life and ministry. This envisages teaching and practising Quiet Time and Bible Study which lead to humble, honest, and thoughtful application of the Scripture in every area of life, both as students and graduates. Particularly, emphasis is focused on Bible truth as well as formation of a Christian mind and lifestyle which reflect the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Relationship with God

Relationship with God is to have an intimate fellowship with God all through the day in all the things we do, say, or think. The quality of our intimacy with God will be reflected and lived out in our attitude and quality of our relationship to others. Our relationship to Christ and the Word of God should so permeate our life that our thinking and action will always be biblical.

Fellowship

 

Fellowship represents spiritual unity among members of UESI family. We are not basically task-oriented people. While task is important, fellowship is more important. Ministry is ushered in and sustained through fellowship. This includes caring, sharing, and bearing one another in love for Christ’s sake and as enabled by the Holy Spirit. Transparent sharing of one another’s problems and confidentiality should mark the fellowship.

Personal Care

Every individual is given importance in UESI and is expected to make his unique contribution to the Kingdom of God. Each member of UESI has the privilege given by God to take care of the people of God, young or old, to enable them to blossom to their God-given potential, to lend their hands in support and building of His kingdom in this country and beyond. Thus personal evangelism, one to one discipling, and open homes are encouraged so that each individual is cared for. This will enable him to receive moral, prayer, and resource support from members of UESI family. Students will have the freedom to approach graduates to share their problems.

Student Initiative

 

UESI ministry is a ministry among students where the initiative and direct responsibility for the witness to the Lord Jesus Christ on campuses are in the hands of the students themselves rather than fulltime workers, experienced graduates or the organization. UESI believes that students – led and enabled by the Holy Spirit – are best equipped to reach other students. They are best aware of existing philosophies and paradigms among students and they are in touch with the issues and challenges.

Life of faith and prayer

UESI is known as a movement of prayer. It is called to a life of faith which depends on God for all its needs and not just for finance. This value has to be part of the lives of graduates, students, and staff. Hence, the mutual help and support among members of UESI family. Students should be able to see this life of faith seen in the graduates and staff so that they are challenged to imitate them. The needs of the members as well as the movement are met by the members out of Christian love and responsibility. Public appeals and pledges are not made. Simplicity and contented life should mark the life of every member.

Shared Leadership

Leadership in UESI is and shall be based on Christlike humble servanthood. The focus is loving and faithful stewardship of responsibilities for His sake and for His glory. There is no one-person-show in UESI. Decisions in the working of the movement shall be made by waiting on God, humble dependence on the leading of the Spirit, and consensus among those who are called to give direction to the movement.

Responsibility towards the society

UESI believes that we are called to be responsible citizens of the land. This means that both

individually and corporately we will obey the laws of the land be exemplary citizens of India.

UESI is called to promote peace and harmony. It is also committed to the growth and

development of a just and righteous society and will take a stand against social evils and corruption.

Moral Purity and Financial Integrity

 

UESI shall maintain high standards of moral and ethical purity in relationships and responsibilities. UESI is committed to maintain integrity in the way we obtain financial and material resources, in maintaining accounts and in utilizing such God given resources. This principle is also applicable to all members of the fellowship.
