Mission Statement: 

Christian Library International has been formed to share God's plan of salvation and the reality of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ here on earth and in heaven. We are a non-denominational non-profit organization and seek to work harmoniously with all who trust in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We Believe:

1. In the one true God who created the entire universe, and everything seen and unseen. He created man and woman in His own image.

Genesis 1:1, 1:26

2. He is all knowing, all loving and all-powerful. Proverbs 15:3,

1 Samuel 2:3, 4:20 , 1 John 4:6, Joshua 4:24

3. We believe in the triune God, three Persons in One - God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit. Genesis 1:26, John 10:30, Matthew 3:16, John 16:15

4. The Triune God is alone worthy of all praise and worship. In prayer, meetings, work, and social gathering we take special time to acknowledge his wondrous characteristics and acts. Colossians 3:16

5. No man or woman is without sin. All have turned to their own way and disobeyed God. Romans 3:23

6. Jesus is the Son of God, the promised Messiah, who died on the cross and in doing so, paid for our sins. He is fully man and fully God.

Romans 5:6-10

7. The only way to have a personal relationship with God and eternal live is to accept Jesus, the Messiah's sacrifice as payment for our sins, to repent of wrongdoing and to invite Him to be Lord and Leader of our life. Romans 10:9-10, Luke 13:3

8. God's plan of salvation is a free gift through His grace and it cannot be earned or purchased. Acts 15:11 , Ephesians 2:8-9

9. Jesus Christ is the Head of His Body, the Church, which is composed of all people, living and dead who have joined in Him through saving faith. He is Head of Christian Library International. Colossians 1:18

10. Jesus Christ will come again to earth and every knee will bow and every voice proclaim that He is Lord. Revelation 19:9-16, Romans 14:11

11. The Bible is the infallible word of the one, true living God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13

12. The two greatest commandments were given to us by Jesus Christ when He said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matt 22:37 -40 We endeavor to show a Christ-like love to all people. Love should be exhibited in our lives by our words as well as our actions.

13. Because of our love of God and our neighbor, Christian Library International wishes to fulfill Jesus' command to make disciples of all nations. Matthew 28:19-20

14. The Holy Spirit indwells those who belong to Christ and conforms them to His image. Acts 2:38

15. We do not adhere to any one denomination but recognize the Holy Spirit's movement and blessing in many different Christian churches and the individual believer. Ephesians 4: 11-13, 1 Corinthians 12:4-14.
