Article I:  Organization

 

101.1 The name of the organization is Global Alliance Interfaith Networks, LLC (G.A.I.N.).  Bishop Carroll A. Baltimore, Th.D., D.Min., is the Visionary, President/Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

 

 

Article II:  What G.A.I.N. Believes

 

201.1 G.A.I.N.  believes it is time that people of all entities and faiths come together to build the cooperation of interfaith alliances and networks of individuals and organizations that commit to put their differences aside and work towards the
same goals on major issues affecting all peoples.  We are in a diverse world where issues are facing us that no one faith leader, person or organizational entity can face alone.  It is difficult for some faith-based, organizational and mission leaders to clearly grasp that the global forces in the 21st Century cannot be fully addressed by a single entity and that globalization is not some fairytale.  The world is steadily changing and our thinking cannot remain localized.  We must accept that the forces of preparation (management, provision and production) have resulted in globalization constraints and concerns that have affected the execution of sustainable development and missions.  We must look at the full impact of how we live, work and what we are dealing with in families, churches, organizations and our own lives.  

 

201.2 G.A.I.N.  believes it is time for leaders and grassroots to have a safe place to dialogue and focus on common concerns to strengthen each other within ourselves, inside our own comfort circles and at the same time reach out to others who are dealing with the same issues and learn how we can solve some our commonalities for the benefit of all.  We must develop our collective thoughts and collaborate with the right people so that we can make a difference in the quality of life of all peoples.  Technology, social media and the mingling of diverse cultures has forced us to think about what, how and when we take action on issues that affect our own livelihood and communities.  We must think about how we reach and teach diverse peoples of different cultures to create effective ministries and productive businesses.  With our different views and beliefs, we must come together on common issues that affect all of us at all levels.  We may have to agree to disagree on some issues and move forward with those things we can resolve.  We cannot govern what is happening with globalization without being influenced by what is going on in the world, not to exclude our own towns, states, regions and nations.  We certainly cannot exclude our children, grandchildren, others children, families, workers and church members.  There are many stakeholders with an interest in living an abundant life with poverty, global crisis, social justice, natural and human disasters, violence, and other denominators influencing our lives.  We need to combine our resources, strategize, plan, take action and make a difference.

 

201.3 G.A.I.N. believes that we must view the world as one nation and accept responsibility for diverse peoples who suffer from the lack of education, homelessness, poverty, injustices, climate change, jobs, health care and other issues and include them in global mission markets.  We know that we cannot fix every situation, but dialogue, best practices and commitment to agreeable plans gives us a start to get people involved who have been left out of the equation.  We must teach our children, grandchildren and future generations to think like a species.  Global citizens must interact and collaborate to develop strategies and plans for action, looking for short and long term resolutions.  Thinking must be relevant and reach across cultures, faiths, private and governmental entities to address moral and humane imperatives that affect our globe and its peoples.  Everyone has something to offer and we can reach common ground to bring about effective changes in the way of life, without completely changing cultures and values.

 

Article III:  Vision – What the future looks like

 

301.1  G.A.I.N.  networks of diverse peoples and organizations intentionally communicate and act from a global perspective for the future good of all.  G.A.I.N. global leaders, clergy, independent churches, laity, individuals and organizations of different faiths, beliefs, challenges, missions and policies dialogue, develop strategies and goals; and take action on plans, implementing change in areas that affect peoples’ lives, environment, work and worship in their communities, countries and nations.
