Faith


We’re not rule-driven, we’re love-driven

wImagine’s core is the Division of Faith. We follow the truth in our lives and lead with love to reach other lives. We exist to live His love out by reaching the world, loving all people, and by sacrificially giving.

About the Seal

At the center of wImagine’s seal is the Cross. We are strong because the cross is at the center of what we do (Leadership & Advancement, the two seals to the right of the cross) and who we are (Faith & Health, the two seals to the left of the cross). The cross was the greatest gift of Love and we carry that gift through how we live.

Generosity


We give because He gave


Why we Give

We recognize that because Christ gave first, we give of our money, time, and talents. There’s no need for a kickback or a feel good moment. The Cross was enough, what we have is already unfairly skewed in our favor, and so, we give.

How we Give

We irrationally initiate giving to causes who align to our mission, sustain giving to causes who stay trustworthy, and increase giving when excellence is achieved. Preference is given to causes who effectively provide short-term relief or long-term restoration.

Generosity is at the core of wImagine and we give up our time and resources to support organizations which provide short-term relief after emergencies & long-term restoration to give people the support they need.

At wImagine, we donate 10% of our income to support organizations & people who need relief or restoration. We give because we realize we are infinitely stronger than when we are apart and because Christ gave first.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.1 Corinthians 13:2

Justice


We love the lost so the lost can love


We stand up for equality, justice, and love for all people, regardless of race, creed, country of origin, story, disability, status, & [insert everything else here]. We are fully committed into ensuring that there exists no political power and no earthly power, which can deny Christ’s love from reaching the edge of the Earth.

Freedom


We follow the truth because the truth frees


Because Christ’s sacrificial gift has freed us, we free others. We free others by sharing his Love, by following the Truth in all we do, and by freeing people through unconditional forgiveness. We celebrate our freedom by sharing it in all we do.
