- Evangelism – to encourage Christian doctors and medical students to be witnesses for Christ among all those they meet.
- Mission – to mobilise and support all Christian doctors, medical students and other healthcare professionals, especially members, in serving Christ throughout the world.
- Values – to promote Christian values, especially in bioethics and healthcare, among doctors and medical students, in the church and in society.
‘I am in sympathy with the Aims of the Christian Medical Fellowship. I declare my faith in God the Father and in God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is my Saviour, and in God the Holy Spirit. I accept the Bible as the supreme authority in matters of faith and conduct.’
