Our values are rooted in our Christian belief and are based on our understanding of relational theology, which asserts that human beings are called to have a special relationship with God and in turn to have a particular relationship with one another. Our faith in God, and in his loving relationship with us, gives us confidence and hope that poverty can be ended, despite all that might stand in the way. Our faith tells us that human beings are created in the image of God, and that we should all use our power, skills and resources for the good of all.
But we experience the world as one damaged and often broken by suffering, injustice and sinfulness — a world in which there is poverty and war, hunger and pain. The relationships between people, communities, corporations and nations are distorted, as inequality becomes greater, oppression stronger and poverty persistent.
Even creation itself is in crisis, as it is exploited and degraded. Where relationships are broken or distorted, wherever there is stigmatisation or discrimination, where some are exploited or diminished by others, we believe that these relationships should and can be changed. We believe the world can be restored and transformed, and that there is hope for a renewed world to come.
The issues we work on are complex. But we have hope and confidence that God is with us, revealing to us good ways of living human life together. Our film below is based on this verse from the New Testament - which sums up what Christian Aid is all about.
