Mission Statement


YWAM's Mission statement is, "To Know God, and to make Him Known." More specifically, Create International seeks to ?Declare God?s glory in all the world? through producing and distributing culturally relevant media resources to initiate and strengthen evangelistic and church planting efforts among the remaining unreached people groups of the world. (Matt 28:18-20, Romans 15:20,21) We focus on creating integrated media packages for field workers who are laboring among the least evangelized mega people groups (people groups over 1 million). These packages are specially designed to meet the broad spectrum of needs involved in reaching unevangelized peoples and establishing an indigenous church. Each people group is unique and has a unique story and way they will best understand the gospel. Thus, all our resources are created specifically for each target people group, using the people?s heart language and culture. Our evangelistic films weave the gospel into a story that the people will relate with. The contextual gathering videos show an example of what an indigenous ?church? could look like, if the people worshipped using their own cultural forms and yet also were very Biblical based and followed all the commands of Christ. Very few ministries in the world are focusing on unreached people utilizing these methods.

Description


Youth With A Mission is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM, our calling is to know God and to make Him known. Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth into short-term mission work and to give them opportunities to reach out in Jesus' name. Today, we still focus on youth, and we also involve people of almost every age (even many people who choose to spend their "retirement" in active service). Our many ministries fit into three main categories: evangelism, training and mercy ministry. We are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 149 countries, with a staff of nearly 16,000. Youth With A Mission (YWAM) encompasses thousands of people and hundreds of ministries in almost every country of the world. In every case, our passion is to know God and to make Him known. We are a mixture of people from all over the world, from 149 countries in fact. In many of our locations, people from a wide variety of nations serve side by side. We come from numerous different Christian denominations and speak hundreds of languages. Nearly half of our staff comes from "non-western" countries, such as Brazil, Korea, Indonesia, India and Nepal. In addition to our full-time staff, many YWAM locations host short-term outreach teams made up of individuals, youth groups, families and churches who get to participate first-hand in "making God known" through both words and actions. We send out over 25,000 short-term missionaries each year.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting Jesus personally to this generation, to mobilizing as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission. As citizens of God's kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world. We of Youth With A Mission believe that the Bible is God's inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God's son; that people are created in God's image; that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ; that although all people have sinned and come short of God's glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ; that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God's initiative of grace towards us; that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth; and that the Holy Spirit's power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ's last commandment, "...Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).
