Mission Statement: 

The mission of the Gulf South Leadership Institute is to ignite innovative, vibrant, and progressive leadership and management practices within a given community.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

The Advisory Board and Board of Directors agree the Institute will be guided by no creed but the Scriptures and teachings thereof, which inspire the following core values:

1.THAT GOD is not only the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent Creator of the universe, but also the loving Father, Provider of all life, and righteous Judge.

2. THAT THE BIBLE is God's divinely inspired revelation to man. These Holy Scriptures are not to be added to, nor subtracted from, by anyone.

3. THAT JESUS is the Christ, the Son of God, who came to earth in the fullness of time, as Savior and as Messiah. This same Jesus is recognized as the only begotten Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, crucified on the cross after a sinless life on earth, raised bodily as Lord from the tomb, ascended into heaven as King of Kings, and is coming again to reclaim those who are His own.

4. THAT THE CHURCH is the divine institution by which God has provided for the preaching of the Gospel and the salvation of the world. This Church, the Body of Christ, has divinely given ordinances, which are Christian baptism, the immersion of the penitent believer for the remission of sins, and the gift of the Holy Spirit; and the Lord?s Supper, observed weekly in the remembrance of Him.

5.THAT THE UNITY of all followers of Christ can be realized on the basis of a return to the primitive pattern for Church doctrine?in practice, in polity, and in life as seen in the New Testament.

To this end, it is the intentional goal of the board members, staff, and instructors of the Gulf South Leadership Institute to endorse unity, by promoting learning and networking environments for leaders from all social sectors of life.
