Bukas Loob Sa Diyos (BLD) Community

Vision

We are a communion of families and a community of persons called together as one people through a moment o f encounter and a process of renewal to a relationship of faith, hope, and love with God. We are reconciled with the Father by our saving faith in Jesus Christ, renewing trust in the Holy Spirit, and by our uniting compassion with one another. We are blessed with personal gifts — spiritual and natural, innate or acquired — which we yield to the Word and the Spirit. We give freely and fully of ourselves, love and serve one another as we seek and proclaim God’s kingdom. We commit, as disciples of Jesus, to speak the words and do the deeds of Christ among people and among others to whom we are called by the Lord.

Charism

We are the Lord’s under-shepherds. We will be witnesses to the Word that others may hear and understand. We will be counselors with the Spirit, that others may have healing and wholeness. We will be defenders in Christ of those who suffer injustice and oppression.

Mission

The Lord calls us to be Servants of the Pilgrim Church, in her work of a renewed integral evangelization:

  • Restoring the family in Christ
  • Forming Basic Communities of faith, or Basic Ecclesial Communities
  • Strengthening of the parish
  • Breaking the yoke of poverty and oppression; and
  • Raising an army of prayer warriors for Church and national renewal

Renewed Mission

As a communion of encountered families, we are called by the Lord to build communities of disciples of Jesus Christ who, empowered by the Holy Spirit, will renew and strengthen our Christian faithful through programs of Christian Encounter (Marriage, Family, Solo/Single Parent, Singles and Youth Encounters, and Life in the Spirit Seminars) of Spiritual Growth, of Pastoral Care and of Poverty Alleviation.
