Mission statement

Statement of faith

We believe in:

  1. The absolute inerrancy, verbal inspiration and plenary authority of both the Old Testament and New Testament of the Holy Bible, which was designed for our practical instruction.
  2. The Godhead eternally exists in three persons-the Father, the Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit - these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same homage, confidence and obedience.
  3. The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miaracles, in His vicarious death and remittance through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and Glory to establish His Kingdom.
  4. The total depravity of man, as a consequence, of his sin or fallen nature, he lost his spiritual life and became subject to the power of the Devil. Every child since Adam is born into the world with a nature essentially that is sinful, apart from divine grace and mercy.
  5. The Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, regenerates, indwells, enlightens and guides the believer.
  6. The unity of believers, who are united to the risen and ascended Son of God, Lord Jesus Christ and who are members of the church which is the body and bride of Jesus Christ. By the same Holy Spirit all believers are baptized into one body that is Jesus Christ's and having become members one of another, are under solemn duty to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, rising above all sectarian differences, and loving one another with a pure Christ-like heart & 'agage' love fervently.
  7. The explicit message of our Lord Jesus Christ is to those whom He saved, that they are sent forth by Him into a fallen and sinful world as He was sent forth of His Father into this world. They are divinely reckoned to be related to this world as strangers and pilgrims, ambassadors with a life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices, and that their primary purpose in life should be to make Jesus Christ and His eternal message known to the world by words and deeds.

Financial Commitment to our Supporters:

India National Inland Mission since 1964 is committed to faithful stewardship of funds entrusted to us by Donors. We pledge to use gifts prayerfully, wisely and effectively in Jesus's Name under the governance of an independent US based Board and an independent Indian based Board on the Mission-field. This remains our practice since 1964

The bylaws governing this ministry directs all donated funds less the permissible US administrative costs as permitted by the governing US Board to be used for the sole purposes of reaching out in compassion through Humanitarian efforts to earn the right to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have never had the opportunity to hear before. All donations are used to accomplish this sole purpose.

We are committed to maintaining the following standards:

We subscribe to a written Statement of Faith clearly affirming our commitment to the evangelical Christian faith.

We are governed by an independent US Board and Indian Board, with the majority of whom are neither staff members or relatives of staff members.

We obtain an annual audit which is performed by an independent public accounting firm, R A Morse Accounting & Tax Services, in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards (GAAS) with financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

We have a functioning audit review committee appointed by the Board, with no one represented who are either family, staff or relatives of staff members, for the purpose of reviewing the annual audit and reporting its findings to the Board.

We provide copies of our current audited financial statements upon written request.

We seek to conduct our activities with the highest standards of integrity and avoid conflicts of interest.

As part of the Mission's original Core values we do not promote what is deemed as aggressive fund raising methodologies like monthly fund-raising appeal letters, Gift Catalogues, personal sponsorship etc. We only send our occasional newsletters to those who have somehow come in personal contact with the Mission or personally referred by a friend of the ministry.

All names and address in the Mission data base are deemed strictly confidential. The Mission has not, does not and will not engage in the practice of buying and selling names and addresses from Marketing vendors and other Christian Non-profit Organizations.
