Stewardship of the Earth

As followers of Christ, the people of the Wycliffe Global Alliance support stewardship* of the Earth

  • in reverence to God
  • with respect for God’s creation
  • in response to God’s desire for restoration and renewal of all things through Christ.

We delight in and celebrate the beauty and diversity of creation and invite others to join in this celebration.

We recognize ourselves as participants in God’s story of redemption and reconciliation, which includes all creation.

We acknowledge our God-given responsibility and privilege to care for the Earth and we share in our Creator’s love and concern for all His creatures. God’s Word is our authority and guide for wise stewardship in all things.

We acknowledge that many of those most affected by environmental issues are among the poor and least powerful. Many of these people are part of the minority language communities with whom we serve.

We accept personal and corporate responsibility for care of the Earth through wise attitudes and actions concerning our use of resources and our impact on the environment.

Therefore, we commit ourselves to be both servants and stewards, in awareness of and attendance to the holistic needs of Earth’s peoples and their environment.

*Stewardship—to hold something in trust for another. Stewardship of the Earth, or environmental stewardship, is the responsible care and use of this planet’s resources, recognizing that they belong to God and that He has given us the privilege of enjoying and caring for what He has created.
