Airborne was initiated as a Christian initiative in the airlines, aviation, aerospace and travel industry. This site provides Christian contacts and resources for aircrew, business travellers and passengers - especially when they are away from home.

We support the activities of FCAP, AAACF and CBMC around the globe.

Our Christian position is mainstream, inter-denominational and international in nature. This site has no Church denominational affiliations and is both non-political and non-profit. Airborne upholds the Christian Airline Fellowship belief statement.

This site operates under the hope and authority of John 15:16:
"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit - fruit that will last."

The basis of our fellowship is Christ centered in accordance with John 14:23: "Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."

This site is an open resource available to everyone and we hope you will find the contents useful and informative.

The Airborne Vision was started by Peter Kentley (Captain) in February 1997 and the web site was launched in April 1998.

 

Airborne is supported by the following organisations:

Notes on Christian Leadership

Jesus says, "Dwell in me and I will dwell in you. Live in me and I will live in you." (John 15:4-7). He is more interested in the time you spend with Him, than with the works you accomplish in His name.

Spiritual principles for living in Christ:

  1. The requirements for spiritual leadership are different from the requirements for leadership in the secular world. For the Christian there must be a purity of heart and actions that reflect Jesus Christ. The standards of our secular culture are not high enough for the believer.

  2. Whatever ministry God gives belongs to God. It is His ministry, and He will use it to draw men and women to himself. Ministry is not the reason for our life in Christ. We have life in Christ because He desires us to belong to Him. Our vocation also belongs to Jesus as a primary place of service and witness.

  3. Don't let what we do be the value on which we base our personal relationship with Jesus. The secular world measures us by performance because the things we do are the most visible. Don't let this take first place in our life. Jesus is most concerned with the quality of our relationship with Himself. What we do for Him is merely an expression of our life in Him.

  4. When we walk in Christ, the approval of others takes its proper place inn our life. We will glance at others and gaze at Jesus.

  5. We learn to depend on the Holy Spirit's power to free us from a spirit of comparison with others. Gal. 6:4-6 says to "test your own actions." Jesus' response to Peter, when asked how John would die, was "What is that to you?" (John 21:23) The key is finding God's will for our life and do it.

  6. There is a deep inner peace that comes when we are fulfilling the purpose for which we were created.

  7. There are times when the Lord closes the door on one ministry and opens another - or, close the door for a time to bring us to a place of refreshment with Him. If our "ministry" is totally surrendered to Him, He will help us to stay steady and wait for Him. Waiting is not easy, but not only is it important to know His will, it is also important to know His timing.
