Statement of Faith
John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Musana’s foundation is based on Christian values, the forefront being LOVE. In everything that we do, we are committed to reflecting the purpose and character of Jesus, treating and recognizing all people as Jesus would. We acknowledge the God-given gift of free will and we pass that gift along to the communities we serve. It is a personal decision to accept and believe the same. We do not discriminate but abide in Jesus’ love, accepting everyone as they are and loving them unconditionally.
