Foundation for Missions is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit interdenominational development missionary organization created to leverage people and resources to bring together churches, charities, relief agencies and communities to focus on making micro and macro effects in developing countries.
To strategically place people and resources for the work of God that will continue the mandate given to Saint Peter.
Saint Peter was the first apostle to recognize that Jesus was the “Christ, the Son of the living God” [Matthew 16:17-19]. It was his declaration and pronouncement that founded the church and that on which the Church has been built ever since. This same opportunity must be granted to every person on earth; to know who Christ is and, most importantly, why He came. The possibility of reaching everyone in the world with this message has never been more possible than it is today. We believe that the “Great Commission” [Matthew 28:18-20] has suffered for lack of vision, focus and resources. For example, why it’s possible for every person on earth to know the modern tabloid stars and yet less than half of the world knows who and why Christ came… and 2000 years have passed?
Foundation for Missions is firstly committed to working with innovative and cooperative partnerships that are focused on the task of reaching out with the message of Christ.
On a micro level, it will operate as a catalyst to bring mission teams, churches, clubs, fellowship groups, schools and individuals to work together with communities in developing countries who are in desperate need of the love and message of Christ.
On a macro level, the vision is that, equipped with enough resources, a dozen Christian businessmen / women could make this possible within 10 years. Then, if we take their plan and strengthen it with strategic partnerships around the globe, the task could be accomplished easier, cheaper and quicker. This foundation will operate as a catalyst to bring these partnerships together, strategize and plan towards these efforts, and provide funding to complete this mandate.
Secondly, The Church, charities and governments throw billions of dollars towards helping the poor, yet most impoverished countries are worse off than ever before. Countries like Haiti and Ethiopia are vivid examples of billions of dollars spent and wasted while the masses remain in a worse condition than they were 50 years ago.
Why isn’t aid working? More importantly, what IS working?
Foundation for Missions is dedicated to seeking out those ministries, programs and projects that are working and to strategically apply resources to multiply these endeavors to create macro and regional results. Most of these will be focused in educational programs and vocational opportunities. The basic philosophy is that “teaching” and “equipping” are essential to raising anyone to productivity. Any and all aid must have the philosophy:
Welfare for a minute, Education for a lifetime
or better put by Christ himself:
“…go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them”
We stand on the Bible as the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We proclaim that a Christian is a person who has come into the Salvation and Lordship of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of virgin birth, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died a vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, bodily rose from the dead, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will personally return in power and glory.
We rely on the convicting, guiding, empowering, equipping, indwelling presence and work of the Holy Spirit to bring us into a holy life and a ministry within the church and witness to the world.
We teach that Christians will be resurrected along with the lost, yet saved unto the resurrection of life while they that are lost will be resurrected unto eternal damnation.
We see the church as the assembly, the community and the fellowship of all Christians united in Christ…THE FAMILY OF GOD.
