Purpose

We innovate solutions to real problems as a demonstration of God's radical love and grace. People dying from lack of access to clean water. Children hidden away because they were born with a disability. Communities lacking access to proper sanitation solutions. These are real issues faced by real people around the world.

We've learned to assume we don't have all the answers. We like to ask, "What makes you lose sleep at night?" This question always connects us to real needs such as food security, access to water, health, nutrition, and more. That's why each of our programs work alongside and with local community members because only they know what issues they face.


Mission statement

Kingdom Workers spreads the gospel by mobilizing Christians in locally sustainable mission work, addressing the physical and spiritual needs of communities worldwide.


Statement of faith

We believe, teach, confess, and proclaim:

The Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, His unchanging and inerrant message to people of all times.

There is only one God. He is three distinct and individual persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God created man holy and without sin. But man, of his own will, fell into sin and thus brought sin upon the whole human race.

Sin is thus in all people by nature and reveals itself in every transgression of God's holy will by thought, word, or deed.

The wages of sin is death and damnation in hell, an eternal agonizing separation from the holy and righteous God.

But God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, Christ Jesus, to redeem the world through His perfect life, His innocent suffering and death, and His resurrection from the dead.

This glorious fact is received by faith which is worked and nurtured in the heart by the Spirit of God, without our participation, through the means of grace: God's Word, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper.

By faith alone in the atoning work of Christ we are heirs of the glories of heaven. While on earth we want to show our love for Him who first loved us.

Faith in Jesus Christ is living and active, therefore faith produces good deeds that are pleasing to God and bring Him glory.

The Lord Jesus Christ commanded His followers to make disciples of all peoples throughout the entire world, and witness to the truth and love of God.

At our death we shall inherit the full glories of everlasting life with Christ in heaven, where there shall be no more pain or sorrow, and all tears shall be wiped from our eyes.

History

Kingdom Workers is what happens when the Christ-centered boldness of a few is met with the Spirit-guided, committed passion of many.

Since its beginning in 1986, Kingdom Workers has been an organization that partners with bold believers to share the message of Christ.

Some of the first projects associated with Kingdom Workers were the Mormon Outreach Ministry in Idaho, Northside Lutheran Ministry, and a couple serving in Zambia, Africa at the Mwembezhi mission station. By 2011, Kingdom Workers had funded approximately 300 mission projects.

In 2012, we saw the opportunity to meet the physical and spiritual needs of communities around the world, so we deployed our first program manager with this purpose in mind.

Today, the scope of what is being accomplished is different than it was 30 years ago, but the mission of Kingdom Workers is still the same. Thanks to the original boldness of a few and the continued committed support of many, Christ's love is reaching into places all over the globe.
