What We Believe

Our Missionary Agency is truly an interdenominational affiliation of workers for Christ. We serve missionaries from all types of church backgrounds. Thus, our Statement of Faith is meant to serve as a general guideline for unity, and is not intended to be an all-inclusive statement of Theology.

   we_believeWe accept the Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, declare these statements of faith:
    1) The Scriptures Inspired.

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. 2 Tim 3:15-17, 1 Pt 1:23-25, Heb 4:12


    2) The One True Godhead.

    The triune Godhead is comprised of three separate and distinct persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed, and function as one member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal. Jn 14:9-11, 23-26, 2 Cor 3:27,18


    3) Man, His Fall and Redemption.

    Man was created good and upright, for God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness." But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. Gen 1:26-31, 3:1-7, Rom 5:12-21


    4) The Salvation of Man.

    Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood and work of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus Christ bore our sins, griefs, and infirmities -- providing salvation, deliverance, and healing for all mankind. Isa 53:4-6, Mat 8:16,17, Rom 10:4-13


    • Faith and Works
      Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our labors for Him are important for the advancement of His Kingdom and expressions of His great love. Rom 10:9-10, Ep 2:8-9, Titus 2: 5-7, 2 Cor 5:9-10, Mt 25:14f.


    • The Evidences of Salvation
      The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct inner witness of the Holy Spirit (Rom 8:16). The outward evidence is a changed life reflecting God's love and kindness toward all men, righteousness, and holiness. Eph 5:1f, Col 3:1f.


    5) The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit.

    The Holy Spirit is the third member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has been sent by Jesus Christ to indwell and empower all believers. Every godly aspect of the Church and the believer's life is accomplished by the influence and work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit indwells believers (Jn 14:7), seals them for the day of redemption (Eph 1:13,14), baptizes them with power (Acts 1:4-8), fills and controls them (Eph 5:17-19), sanctifies them (1 Cor 6:11), and equips them with gifts and ministries (1 Cor 12:4-7) . . .


    • The Holy Spirit desires to manifest Himself through two main avenues of expression: the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. God wants all believers to yield to the character of God (Gal 5:22-25) and to the abilities of God (Rom 12:3-13, 1 Cor 12:7-10, Eph 4:7-16).

    • It is the privilege and command that all believers should "follow after love and desire spiritual gifts" (1 Cor 14:1).

    6) Baptism in Water.

    The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures -- by all who truly repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Mat 28:19, Rom 6-8).


    7) The Lord's Supper.

    The ordinance of the Lord's Supper should be observed by all believers as commanded in the Scriptures. "And when He gave thanks, He broke it, and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body which is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.' In the same way also the cup, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of Me.' For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the Lord's death until He come." (1Cor 11:23-32)


    8) The Church.

    The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Each true believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the first born, which are written in Heaven. Every believer should be in a supportive role of the local churches, which are visible expressions of the invisible Church. (Eph 1:22,23, Eph 2:19-22, Heb 12:22-24)


    9) The Gospel Message.

    The Church has been given the Great Commission, to take the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ to every tongue, tribe, people, and nation (Mt 28:18-20, Mk 16:15-20). The gospel message encompasses total salvation for the whole person:


    • Spiritual. Jn 3:3-8, 2 Cor 5:17-21, Rom 10:9-10.
    • Mental. 2 Tim 1:7, Rom 12:2, Isa 26:3, Jos 1:8.
    • Physical. Isa 53:4-5, Mat 8:16-17, 1 Pt 2:24, 1 Cor 15:53.
    • Financial. 3 Jn 2, Mal 3:10-11, 2 Cor 9:6-10, Deut 28:1-14.
    • Social. Prov 3:1-6, 1 Thes 4:9-12, 1 Jn 2:3-11, 5:1-5.

    10) The Marriage Covenant.

    We believe that “marriage” has only one meaning as delineated in Scripture – a covenant relationship between one man and one woman in an exclusive union that is formally recognized by law. God created human beings as male and female (Gen 1:27). The complementary, relational nature of the human race as “male and female” reflects the order given by God when He created human beings “in His image” and commanded them to “multiply” from their union (Gen 1:26-28; 2:21-25; 3:20; 4:1; 5:1-2; Rom 8:29; 1 Cor 7:2; 2 Cor 3:18; Eph 5:25-28; 6:1-3). - more -


    11) The Blessed Hope.

    The Scriptures declare that Jesus Christ is coming again to gather all His Saints unto Himself. The dead in Christ shall rise first -- then those believers who are alive will be gloriously transformed. Death will be swallowed up in victory. (1Cor 15:50-58, 1Thess 4:16-17, 2 Thess 2:1).


    12) The New Heaven and The New Earth.

    The Bible declares that there shall be a new heaven and a new earth where there shall be no more sorrow, death, curse, or disease. The Saints shall live forever with God to rule and reign with Jesus Christ. (Rev 21 & 22).
