Honoring God by empowering the undernourished with sustainable hunger solutions
Following Jesus by reducing hunger and improving lives worldwide through partnerships that equip people with agricultural resources and skills.
Statement of Faith
Each staff member at ECHO is asked to sign ECHO's Statement of Faith or The Apostles Creed.
ECHO does not ask those who use their services to ascribe to this Statement of Faith. Here's why:
Their staff members are asked to sign a Statement of Faith because the passion behind what they do is directly related to the commands that they read in the Bible that they, as followers of Christ, should care for the widows and the orphans, love God and love their neighbors as themselves. They believe that helping small-scale farmers overcome tired soils and difficult conditions is one way to do that.
As for their recipients, it is clear in the Bible that all people are their "neighbors", and no matter their Faith, they are loving them and God by helping them.
Many of their donors do give out of a calling of their own Faith in God, but others choose to give through ECHO for purely humanitarian reasons. As Christians, they should be the best at what they do for the glory of God, and if people of other faiths notice that and still choose to give through ECHO, then they are doing the right things.
They will never apologize for their Faith, but are thrilled that others want to reduce hunger and improve lives and are partnering with ECHO to do that.
