The AMEC-BCCM believes in the holistic philosophy of man…
Man can only contribute to the development of his country if he is well balanced, integrated and well rounded. He believes that his life in this world is guided and lighted by the word and teachings of Almighty God.

Ago, the founder of this system has envisioned in his life that our country, particularly the Bicol region, can be great if the youth, men and women could be moulded so that they will be morally upright, creative and productive of commodities and ideas.
