Mission Statement: 

Friends in Action International exists to accelerate the work of proclaiming the Gospel to people groups around the world that have not had the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in the word-by-word inspiration and divine authority of the Holy Scriptures. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man; His virgin birth, spotless humanity, vicarious death, bodily resurrection, present advocacy, and His personal, imminent, bodily, visible, pre-pretribulation, and pre-millennial return for His Church. We believe in the fall of man, resulting in his complete and universal separation from God and his need of salvation.
We believe that salvation is a free and everlasting gift of God, entirely apart from works; that every person is responsible to receive salvation by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that a soul once truly saved can never be lost. We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates with divine life and personally indwells the believer upon his faith in Christ for salvation. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and unsaved. We believe in the responsibility of each believer, motivated by the love of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, to witness for Christ and to live sacrificially for the proclamation of the Gospel into all the world. We believe in believers' baptism by immersion.
