In November 1984 the ACROSS Board accepted the following VISION STATEMENT

ACROSS and its agencies have reviewed their involvement with the church and the people of Sudan and commit themselves and such resources as are available and appropriate to their strategies, to work with the church and the peoples of Sudan to achieve their full God given potential.

Our vision of ‘potential’ embraces the economic, social and spiritual status of the people and a church no longer dependent on others for survival and development but only for that enrichment which comes from the interchange of ideas and thought across the boundaries of culture.

Our vision and commitment requires us to serve Sudan and its people across the broadest spectrum of their needs and with due regard to our unity in Christ with the church and christians within the land.”
