Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage. “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.
- Matthew 5:13-15 (MSG)
Out of respect for the Tijuana Christian Mission/City of Refuge ministry, and in order to serve those Beyond Borders in Jesus’ name, we ask that all participants in a Beyond Borders Mexico trip to conduct themselves in a way that is in agreement with the following statements.
I AGREE TO... Submit to the authority of the team leader(s) and staff, abiding by their decisions as concerning the project and agenda, remaining flexible to changes that may occur.
I AGREE TO... Refrain from drinking, smoking/chewing tobacco, using recreational drugs, obscene/insensitive humor, language or remarks, inappropriate sexual behavior, etc.
I AGREE TO... Dress modestly (ladies-no short shorts, tank tops, low cut tops or mid-drifts; guys-wear a shirt at all times).
I AGREE TO... To use separate accommodations if we are not living out the biblical ethic which encourages full sexual expression between a man and woman only in the context of marriage.

I AGREE TO... Respect stated curfews by the leadership.
I AGREE TO... Travel with the rest of the team, interact with members of the team and remain a part of the group.
I AGREE TO... Not wander away from the group with a child at any time.
I AGREE TO... Participate in the worship service experience as is appropriate to where I am at in my spiritual journey.
I AGREE TO... Have a positive attitude and be willing to do whatever it takes to serve - no whiners!
