We deliver experiences for team members to share Christ's love with those they encounter. We encourage discipleship through opportunities for team members as they prepare, engage and debrief the mission experience. We serve to help local churches grow increasing their impact in their home communities and beyond. In the communities where we serve, we strive to share the redeeming Gospel of Jesus Christ and help meet basic needs for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Mission statement

"Bringing People Closer to Christ Through Short Term Missions"

Statement of faith

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative written word of God.

We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, his sinless life, his miracles, his vicarious and atoning death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his personal return in power and glory.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of sinful man. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the unsaved - those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, that all who are united by faith to Christ are members of the same, and that, having thus become members one of another, it is our solemn and covenant duty to fellowship with one another in peace and to love one another with the pure love that comes from God.

CSI Ministries is the product of a vision received by an evangelist in 1963. This missionary promoted missions by showing people first-hand what God was doing to get His Word to a lost world. In 1978 the entire ministry of CSI was turned over to Eddy Cline, and the International Headquarters was moved to Muncie, IN, where he and his wife Shirley operated the ministry out of their home. By 1987 the ministry had grown significantly, and CSI purchased a new office building.

Program accomplishments

Since 1967 we have shared the redeeming Gospel of Jesus Christ with more than 20,000 people in the United States through mission trips and reached thousands more in at least 15 countries around the world. Through these short-term opportunities we deliver experiences for teams to share Christ's love with those they encounter and create opportunities to encourage discipleship among team members. In the communities we serve, short-term teams engage activities that help meet the basic needs for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
