Values are the core characteristics that make us who we are. At SOPMed, our values drive us to do what we do. We believe that life is much more than just a sequence of events that begin at conception and end at the grave. Life is sacred, because it has been given to us by God himself. Our values stem from a Biblical worldview that acknowledges God as our creator and sustainer, Jesus Christ as our Savior and the Holy Spirit as the one who empowers us to live for His glory. We take this stance as the leadership of SOPMed and recognize that not all who participate with us will have the same worldview.
There are over 7 billion people in the world and each of them unique. We recognize that although diverse, we can work together to bring wellbeing to the needy.
You may have heard the phrase, “A man is only as good as his word”. There is a lot of truth to that. It is important that we be able to work together, which can only happen where there is a foundation of trust.
We look at love as more of an action than a concept or feeling. Most everyone loves themselves, which is evidenced by how they care for and treat themselves, but to love others means that we prefer them above ourselves and care for them even if that means sacrifice and discomfort for us.
We believe that innovation and success comes when people are dedicated to what they do and are able to make sacrifices to be good at what they do. Work is not easy… that’s why they call it work.
