To strengthen the Church, equip the saints and reach mankind.
To become an effective leader in multi-media Christian publishing that provides high quality resources and excellent services to Christian communities in the Philippines and beyond.
Our Main Purpose
To develop, publish, promote and distribute excellent yet affordable resources for God’s people to reach today’s world.
The letters of the word BEST summarize these biblical values:
Bible-based. We take great care in producing theologically sound materials that are strongly grounded in the Word of God. CSM accepts the Bible as God’s Word, which is divinely inspired, inerrant and sufficient for all matters pertaining to faith and practice.
Excellence. We make sure all our products and services show a high quality of competence and substance because we believe that God and His people deserve only the best.
Stewardship. We strive to remain faithful with the blessings God has entrusted to us by keeping our prices and rates affordable without sacrificing quality service.
Teamwork. We value the role of each staff member, department, and partner in attaining our goals. We believe that we can accomplish much together with the other member of the Body of Christ rather than apart from them.
Statement of Faith
Church Strengthening Ministry is a theologically conservative publisher who believes:
The Scriptures: The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error. It is the standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. CSM will not publish anything that violates biblical truth.
God: There is only one living and true God. He is the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the Universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature essence, or being.
Man: Man was created by God as recorded in Genesis. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the command of God and fell from his original innocence whereby his posterity inherits a sin nature and environment inclined toward sin. Men inherit a nature corrupt and in bondage to sin, are under condemnation, and as soon as they are capable of moral action, become actual transgressors.
Salvation: There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by his own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
The Church: A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, (baptism and the Lord’s supper) governed by His Laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ and each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. CSM believes that every employee and Board member should be a committed Christian who actively exercises his spiritual gifts through the membership and ministries of a local evangelical church.
Evangelism and Missions: It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. It is one of CSM’s core values to provide materials and training that will strengthen the believer and the local church toward this end.
Cooperation: Members of New Testament churches should cooperate with one another in carrying forward the missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for the extension of Christ’s Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testament sense is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for common ends by various groups of Christ’s people. CSM is committed to cooperation with other Christian denominations when such cooperation involves no violation of conscience or compromise of loyalty to Christ and His Word as revealed in the New Testament.
The Family: God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey parents.
