John 10: 10.
For the CEC Canada Foundation Association the work of the Lord plays out, and shall play out to bring light, love, care, healing, and freedom to those who sit in darkness distanced from God, sitting outside of the prison door, and to those who do not know God and are being held captive and imprisoned by the Evil one and his ways Isaiah 42: 7 - 2 Corinthians 4:4. 2 Timothy 2: 26.

As this activity reaches into every crevice of Church Life, so it shall reach into every crevice of Life outside of the Church, primarily to bring hope to the hurting, in particular to those that do not know which way to turn, to the sick and the dying, and to those who have come to the end of themselves. It is the latter that shall move CEC Canada’s Churches to run and to operate Crisis Lines and Counseling Ceentres to assist the pastoral staff with their obligations.

Based on “ Love your Neighbor, and on, Do all things to the glory of God”, Christians have a responsibility to lend themselves to being involved with God in the things that he is allowing to happen, providentially it is to permit humanity to continue from one generation to another in order to achieve His goals. 2 Peter 3: 13, Revelations chapters 21: 1. God’s people have been given the responsibility to be spiritual lights and salt in the world, and as such to be actively involved in what is called the Providence of God, where-under God permits mankind to move ahead from one generation to another. It is in this move that CEC Canada sees God’s people as being called to do their part, namely in giving the help and supplying the needs which God has predetermined are necessary for mankind to survive, these are, food, clothing, shelter, health, education, security, and protection, God’s reason, to give man the time and the opportunity to come through for Him.
