RESCUE vulnerable, impoverished and at-risk children
PREVENT children from becoming social orphans
CREATE opportunities for new life
SHARE CHRIST with everyone


Statement of faith

As a Christian organization, ORPHANetwork believes:

The Bible is the inspired word of God and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

There is one living sovereign God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Rev. 1:8; Isaiah 43:10-11; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19)

God created people in his image and everyone matters to God. (Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 5:1-2).

Jesus was sent by the Father to live on earth; he was fully God and fully human yet had no sin. Jesus willingly laid down his life and after three days rose from the grave. In doing this Jesus fulfilled the payment for the world's debt of sin. (Luke 1:31,35; 1 Cor. 15:3; 2 Cor. 5:21).

All people are sinners and need God's forgiveness. (Romans 3:23). Those who confess and turn from their sin, trusting in Jesus Christ, will be saved by grace and become children of God with the promise of eternal life. (John 3:16-17; Gal. 3:26).

Jesus Christ is the head of the church and all believing people are members. (Eph. 4:15-16)

The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and to empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He lives in every believer and is a constant teacher, helper and guide. (John 14:16-17)

Jesus Christ will return and there will be a final judgment. (Matt. 24:3,37)

History

In the mid-nineties, a youth group from Spring Branch Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia walked into an orphanage in Nicaragua. Little did they know that one visit would change their lives and the lives of thousands of children living in Nicaragua forever.

These teenagers, completely wrecked by what they saw, started selling their CD's, stereos and clothes to help the children in the orphanage. Their parents were amazed by the transformation and compassion of their kids, and decided to check out the orphanage for themselves.

Thus began ORPHANetwork - a network of like-minded churches and individuals who have God's heart for social orphans.

Compassion for the poor that started in one orphanage has grown into an award-winning nonprofit that is seeing tremendous transformation in 16 out of 17 districts (states) in the country. Today, ORPHANetwork has grown to reach nearly 31,000 vulnerable and orphaned children on a daily basis. Our mission is being lived out each day through our network of local partners and staff in Nicaragua and the investors, churches and organizations who make their work possible.
