Mission & Beliefs

Our Mission

To inspire and equip others to love orphaned and at-risk children and their communities with excellence.

We are working toward that goal by researching orphan care and collaborating with other excellence-driven orphan care providers and advocates to establish a model framework for best-practice driven, innovative, and culturally appropriate communities of care for orphans and widows.

La Providencia, our incubator family-based orphan care community in Honduras, is one example of such a best-practice orphan care community. We also are advocating for orphans among governments, society, and the Church through a collaborative book project, dissemination of information and training materials, and Internet-based discussions.

We believe in…

Unity

in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.

Ephesians 1:22-23; I Corinthians 12:12, 27.

Evangelism

that the ministry of evangelism is a responsibility of both the church and each Christian.

Romans 10:9-15; Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:18-20; I Peter 3:15.

One Triune God

that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6

The Bible

the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

II Timothy 3:15-17

Jesus

in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

John 1:1-4; Matthew 1:23; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 & 4:15; Acts 1:11 & 2:22-24; I Corinthians 15:3-4

Salvation

that, for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit and that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation.

Titus 3:4-7; Luke 24:46-47; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Acts 4:12.

Resurrection

in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment.

Revelation 20:11-15; I Corinthians 15:51-57.

Holy Spirit

in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life.

Galatians 5:16-18; Romans 8:9.
