Description


Mercy Line Foundation Uganda is an independent, indigenous non-governmental organization with the prime mandate of providing an education formal or vocational to desperately poor and neglected orphans whose parents have died of AIDS. Mercy Line assists children with AIDS and widows that have lost their spouses to AIDS and most of them HIV+ themselves. Based on christian Faith. Our aim is to reach all kinds and depths of HIV/AIDS afflicted people in both rural and urban communities through various means especially the teaching of the love and virtue of Jesus Christ. Orphan Placement Mercy Line moves children from the streets and War Scourged Areas of Northern Uganda (Gulu) into families. African culture has not traditionally institutionalized orphans. Mercy Line Ministries places a great value on placing children with foster families providing mother and/or fathers who care for them responsibly. Orphan Education Mercy Line supports children with direct school sponsorship funding, school admission and supplies to children who otherwise would be on the streets. These children receive not only an education but a safe mentoring atmosphere through school to help them grow and mature. For many Uganda children, the expense of the required uniform is enough to prevent them from attending school. We have many projects and visions you should know about and so we encourage you to navigate through pages and we pray you can find how to bless a life today. www.mercylinefoundation.org

Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of the Universe, the co-eternal Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, God's Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary atoning death on the cross, rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that the Bible is God's authoritative and inspired Word. It is without error in all its teachings, including creation, history, its own origins, and salvation. Christians must submit to its divine authority, both individually and corporately, in all matters of belief and conduct, which is demonstrated by true righteous living. We believe that all people are lost sinners and cannot see the Kingdom of God except through the new birth. Justification is by grace through faith in Christ alone. We believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic Church. Its calling is to worship God and witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the Gospel among all nations and demonstrating its commitment by compassionate service to the needs of human beings and promoting righteousness and justice. We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit for the individual's new birth and growth to maturity, and for the Church's constant renewal in truth, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power, and mission. We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment to completion. God will fully manifest His kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever and exclude all evil, suffering, and death.
