Our Mission is to develop orphaned and neglected children into mature Christians equipped to live in their own culture. We do this by enabling Christian nationals to meet the physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of these children.

Statement of Faith
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful men is by the grace of God through faith in Christ and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. They that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal separation from God.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
