Mission Statement


To intentionally present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people, using all forms of media, and providing a way to respond.

Description


In 1996, George Barna released a report stating that up to 36% of a Christian radio or television audience had not accepted Christ. As a result of this report, several ministries came together and discussed using 60-second radio spots to present a clear, concise, and culturally relevant Gospel message as well as a toll free number for listeners to respond. That vision became reality in 1997 when the first spots were run on five radio stations. As a result of God’s hand moving in the lives of listeners, 500 people came to Christ. Since those first radio spots in 1997, NEEDHIM has received over 800,000 calls and presented the Gospel to over 70,000 people. The radio spots are heard on over 1200 radio and TV stations, and the 888-NEEDHIM is displayed in countless printed formats. In addition, NeedHim has become more than just phone calls. Each year the www.NeedHim.org website/chat logo receives 4 million visits, our volunteers respond to over 10,000 emails, and 12,000 instant message chats about Christ from all over the world! Until February 2000, volunteers who logged on to the network from home answered all calls. However, the need for a call center became obvious as the responses continued to grow so NeedHim opened its first answer center. Volunteers can still take calls from home using our internet system. NeedHim works together with Luis Palau, American Tract Society, Hope for the Heart, Jesus Video, Campus Crusade for Christ, Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, National Day of Prayer and Moody Broadcasting. The borders of NeedHim continue to expand as we seek to tell more and more people about Jesus. In a culture where anonymity is prized, we offer a place for people to turn where they can find real answers without real confrontation. At the present time, we have over 130 volunteers who donate 1-2 hours a week to the Lord by answering calls. Many of them have come to NeedHim knowing that they need to share the Gospel, but have never done so. They usually experience some fear before taking that first call, but after prayer, encouragement and role-playing, they are able to overcome their fear. Nothing can take away the fear of sharing the Gospel more than sharing the Gospel. Here at NeedHim, they’re learning and people are listening.

Organizational Statement of Faith


1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. 2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. 4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. 5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. 6. 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 damnation. 7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. As adopted by the Board of Directors, June 11, 1998
