Organizational Statement of Faith


Larry and Frances Jones are pleased to identify themselves as Christians. The acts of compassion performed by Feed The Children are motivated by their Christian convictions. Jesus himself used actions, as well as words, to share His message of peace and lifechange. He asked his followers to do the same; feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit those who are sick and in prison and attend to the needs of widows and orphans. Feed The Children has embraced that model to demonstrate its values. These acts of mercy as instructed in the Bible are not restricted to persons of like religious conviction. Indeed, Jesus himself ministered to people who were not of his religion or ethnic group. Accordingly, Feed The Children makes no religious test of persons who may benefit from its help. Feed The Children works with and serves people of all nations, ethnic groups and religions, without discrimination. Feed The Children is a non-denominational organization. Though many churches, synagogues and mosques support our organization and still others assist in the distribution of goods, there is no individual church, denomination or religion that controls our work. All of the members of our board share our convictions about the importance of helping others and identify themselves as Christians; however none of them acts as a representative of an organized religious body.
