Mercy Air South Africa

Organization Description: 

Mercy Air South Africa (MA SA) was established as a non-profit organisation in 1991. From the beginning, MA SA has operated its flight services without interruption outside the borders of South Africa.
Mercy Air is registered as a Section 21 Company in South Africa. This was achieved in 2003 (Registration date: 10 February 2003) to provide the best legal framework for Mercy Air’s wider accountability and fulfillment of its responsibilities.
Through the process of strategic planning, it was confirmed that Mercy Air exists to provide support to missions, the national church and relief and development agencies.

Mercy Air operates aircraft to transport mission, aid and relief personnel to remote areas in the Southern African region. We operate fixed wing and helicopter aircraft from our base in White River. By partnering with other organisations, we provide a service to the disadvantaged in the region, specially in Mozambique

P.O. Box 1735

Mission Statement: 

Mercy Air uses aircraft to facilitate spiritual and physical relief by partnering with those who serve people in need.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Evangelical Christians accept the revelation of the Triune God given in the Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament and confess the historic faith of the Gospel therein set forth.
The sovereignty and grace of the Triune God, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The divine inspiration and infallibility of the Old and New Testaments as originally given and their consequent entire trustworthiness in all matters of faith and conduct.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
The substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, as the sole and all-sufficient grounds of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and its eternal consequences.
The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ who was crucified and bodily rose from the dead.
The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit.
The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the body of which Christ is the Head, which is committed by His command to proclamation of the gospel throughout the world.
The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
