All people matter to God, and therefore, they matter to us. All people deserve to be treated with respect, love, and hospitality, regardless of race, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status.
POBLO sees integrity as central to our organization. We value openness, honesty, and trust. We make it a point to implement these principles in our work.
POBLO strives to foster a culture of inclusiveness in all that we do. We value diversity and extend our services to all, regardless of nationality, religion, or cultural background.
POBLO believes in one Gospel message that transcends cultures, yet we recognize that the way the message is delivered must vary in order to resonate with diverse groups of people. We strive to make our work as effective as possible through cultural relevancy.
In the Islamic faith, conversion to Christianity or any other religion is punishable by death. Many of the people we work with face possible discrimination and even danger from family and friends if they believe in Christ. We are aware of the risks and do all that we can to ensure their security.
There is one Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7-8).

All people are loved by God (John 3:16).
All people should be given the opportunity to hear the Gospel message (Matthew 24:14).
Christians are called to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19).
