Our non-profit ministry is privileged to serve thousands of different churches with the video content on RightNow Media. As we evaluate the kind of content to make available on RightNow Media, we strongly consider these two things:
1. Does the content agree with the core essentials of the Christian faith? We strive to find content and teachers that align with the essentials of the faith. God exists eternally as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the Word of God. Salvation is received by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ. Our full doctrinal statement can be found here.
2. Does the content match with the themes our team feels passionate about? Since we are committed to helping people avoid compartmentalizing their faith to just a Sunday morning experience, we love to help pastors and church leaders equip and unleash their people. Instead of outsourcing their spiritual growth to the pastor, we believe all believers can intentionally live out their faith at home, work, school, in their neighborhoods and around the world. You can read more about the nine themes our team values in the section below.
We recognize that the churches we serve come from different denominations and traditions. We are not a cause-based ministry and therefore will avoid making one social issue or political cause our main focus. Instead, the RightNow Leadership Team takes into consideration the two questions above and ultimately decides based on what we believe would be most helpful to the churches we serve. In order to respect the theological traditions of the churches we serve, we have built curation tools into RightNow Media so church leaders can filter content available to church members.
We love the local church and love to see Christians live out their faith. Our prayer is that God would use this content to transform the way people engage the world for Christ.
1. Our American culture immerses itself in consumerism and me-ism, BUT we can choose daily to live generously with our time, money and skills.
2.The idea of a missionary is often associated with a foreign country, BUT Christ has called His people to live on mission every day in whatever location He has placed each of us.
3. Pastors and church leaders feel tempted to do the “lion’s share” of the ministry in their community, BUT the biblical leader will personally model a gospel-centered life AND unleash others for the sake of the gospel.
4. Believers feel tempted to outsource their faith to the “professional Christians” (pastors) in their churches, BUT we each have a God-given responsibility to diligently pursue God through Scripture, prayer, fellowship and service.
5. Small groups at church provide a great place to build relationships and care for each other, BUT we must find ways to transform small groups from holy huddles into launching pads that transform the community.
6. Volunteer leaders and pastors can feel over-burdened and under-qualified, BUT ongoing training and inspiration equips leaders to confidently carry out their God-given role as shepherds.
7. Churches provide a lot of good programs to develop faith, BUT families must seek to live intentionally in order to grow their faith within their homes.
8. Many people spend most of their time at work and neglect to see how it intersects with faith, BUT we reject a divide between the sacred and secular because we believe working with our God-given skills should serve as an act of worship.
9. Many people see the world as a hopeless and dark place, BUT Scripture teaches us to hate injustice and provide the hope found in Jesus.
