Mission Statement: 



Revised and Adopted May, 2001


The purpose of TEAM is to help churches send missionaries to establish reproducing

churches among the nations to the glory of God.


We will work together to reproduce the body of Christ wherever the most people have the

greatest need.


1. God dependence. We subject our lives to the truth of Scripture, and we rely on God

through prayer. God provides what is necessary to carry out world evangelization.

While only God can save, we speak His words, use His gifts and reflect His love.

Without constant reliance on God through prayer and obedience to His Word, we can do

none of these things.

2. Church focus. Our work is focused on the church from beginning to end. We engage

existing churches in cooperative efforts to establish new churches worldwide and then

encourage those churches to establish even more new churches.

3. Vision. Christian visionaries see the immediate future in light of eternity. We see the

day when the people of God from every tribe, tongue, people and nation will be

gathered around the throne of heaven, worshipping Him. Keeping our eyes on this

vision, we are adaptable and flexible, gladly changing methods when appropriate.

4. Passionate service. Because lost people matter to God, they matter to us. We go to

serve, not to be served. We work where the gospel is least known because we have

been commanded to do so, and because people?s ultimate need is to find eternal life

through a personal relationship with God.

5. Lifelong learners. Character and competence are both indispensable. None of us

starts with complete maturity or fully developed skills. Through lifelong learning and

development, we increase our effectiveness and become what God already knows we

can be. We seek to empower all TEAM personnel to reach their full potential.

6. Caring community. People are our most valuable asset. We in TEAM relate to each

other in a community characterized by unity, trust, acceptance and diversity, linking

arms with God?s people wherever we find them. We are accountable to one another,

evaluating ourselves regularly. The more we are a caring community, the more we

demonstrate peace and brotherhood to a world torn apart by divisive hatreds.

TEAM Statement of Faith

? We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New

Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God,

without error in the original writings, the

complete revelation of His will for the salvation

of man and the divine and final authority for all

Christian faith, life, and conduct.

? We believe in one God, Creator of all things,

infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three

persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

? We believe Jesus Christ, without any change in

His eternal deity, became man through

conception by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth,

that He died on the cross, a perfect and complete

sacrifice, in our stead and for our sins according

to the Scriptures. He arose bodily from the dead,

and ascended into heaven where at the right

hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our

High Priest and Advocate.

? We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is

to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this

age to convict of sin and regenerate the sinner

upon believing in Christ, at the time of

regeneration baptizing the believer into the one

body of which Christ is the Head; and to

indwell, guide, instruct, fill, and empower the

believer for godly living and service.

? We believe that man was directly created by God

in His own image, but fell into sin. The entire

human race is, therefore, lost and only through

repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and

regeneration of the Holy Spirit, can salvation and

spiritual life be obtained.

? We believe that the atoning death of Jesus Christ

and His resurrection provide the only ground of

justification and salvation for all who believe, and

that only such as receive Jesus Christ by personal

faith are born of the Holy Spirit and by Him are

sealed to the day of redemption.

? We believe in the personal, premillennial return of

our Lord Jesus Christ, and that the hope of His

appearing has a vital bearing on the personal life

and service of the believer.

? We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the

dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and

joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to

judgment and everlasting and conscious


? We believe that the Church is composed of all such

persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ

have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are

united together in the body of Christ, of which He

is the Head.

? We believe that water baptism and the Lord?s

Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church

during this present age. They are, however, not to

be regarded as means of salvation.

? We believe that all the saved should live in such

manner as will honor and glorify and not bring

reproach upon their Savior and Lord, and that it is

commanded of God to remain separate from false

doctrines, and sinful pleasures, practices, and


? We believe in the existence of angels who worship

God and minister to believers. We also believe in

the existence of Satan, the devil, a fallen angelic

being, who with his demons opposes God, His

people, and His work, but over whom Christians

can have spiritual victory.
