- Affect change: We believe that God desires to use Touching Lives to change lives spiritually as well as physically.
- Medical support: We believe that God desires to use His followers in every nation to reach out to their fellow countrymen, therefore we are committed to support those ministries as opposed to operating them.
- Celebrate diversity: We believe that God desires us to understand, celebrate and show sensitivity toward the unique cultural differences God has given His children globally.
- Promote excellence: We believe that God desires Touching Lives to go beyond being the best we can be to become the best that He would have us to be.
- Encourage flexibility: We believe that God desires us to expect, rather than be surprised by challenges and set-backs to bring about effectiveness in ministry.
