Mission Statement: 

We seek to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by supporting highly effective native missionaries who serve with competent indigenous mission boards based in poorer countries overseas.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. By this is meant a miraculous guidance of the Holy Spirit in their original writing, extending to all parts of the Old and New Testaments, applying even to the choice of words, so that the result is the very Word of God; the only infallible rule of faith and practice. Moreover it is our conviction that God has exercised such singular care and providence through the ages in preserving the written Word, that the Scriptures as we now have them are in every essential particular as originally given, and are the exclusive revelation of God to man.

We believe in one God, who has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the true deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth and His sinless life. We believe in the death of Jesus Christ as a true substitute and that His shed blood was a sufficient expiation for the guilt of all men. We believe in His bodily resurrection from the dead.

We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only for the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We believe that if a man has truly believed in Christ he has become a new creature; old things have passed away and all things have become new.

We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to change our vile bodies and fashion them like unto His glorious body. We believe that He shall reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

We believe it to be the supreme responsibility of the disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ to plant and build His church among all nations.
