International Friendships

Organization Description: 

We have been a Christian non-profit organization for almost 30 years. We seek to evangelize, disciple equip internationals, train Americans in cross-cultural ministry to international students, and to mobilize Christians to reach the internationals on our doorstep by giving them opportunities to serve and advance the Great Commission.

Mission Statement: 

We serve and partner with internationals to make Christ known among the nations.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe:

ƒâ€š ‚•that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life;

ƒâ€š ‚•in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

ƒâ€š ‚•that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man;

ƒâ€š ‚•that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death (which is separation from God) and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature;

ƒâ€š ‚•that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scripture, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood;

ƒâ€š ‚•in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate;

ƒâ€š ‚•in ƒâ€š ‚“that blessed hope, ƒâ€š ‚†the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ;

ƒâ€š ‚•that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God; and

ƒâ€š ‚•in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
