Mission statement

To empower and equip indigenous teams around the world to transform the living conditions and spiritual lives of disadvantaged children and their families so they can transform their village, people group and nation for Christ.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the Word of God, verbally inspired and wholly without error in all that it declares and therefore is the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

We believe in the one true God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We also believe in the virgin birth and the Deity of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who is also the son of man.

We believe the vicarious substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross made atonement for the sin of the world, efficient for all who repent and believe.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ which insures the resurrection of all believers who have received God's gift of eternal life.

We believe in the imminent return of Christ to this earth to set up His kingdom and to judge the righteous.

We believe that man was originally created in the image of God, that he fell into sin through the first Adam, and that he is responsible for all sin committed after reaching the age of accountability and that sin causes him to be separated from God and lost eternally.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all who receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

We believe that Christians are called and commanded to do good works.

We believe that Christians are called to witness for Christ and to preach the gospel to all nations.
