Mission Statement


TEAM?s GUIDING PRINCIPLES Revised and Adopted May, 2001 A. PURPOSE The purpose of TEAM is to help churches send missionaries to establish reproducing churches among the nations to the glory of God. B. VISION We will work together to reproduce the body of Christ wherever the most people have the greatest need. D. DEFINING VALUES OF TEAM 1. God dependence. We subject our lives to the truth of Scripture, and we rely on God through prayer. God provides what is necessary to carry out world evangelization. While only God can save, we speak His words, use His gifts and reflect His love. Without constant reliance on God through prayer and obedience to His Word, we can do none of these things. 2. Church focus. Our work is focused on the church from beginning to end. We engage existing churches in cooperative efforts to establish new churches worldwide and then encourage those churches to establish even more new churches. 3. Vision. Christian visionaries see the immediate future in light of eternity. We see the day when the people of God from every tribe, tongue, people and nation will be gathered around the throne of heaven, worshipping Him. Keeping our eyes on this vision, we are adaptable and flexible, gladly changing methods when appropriate. 4. Passionate service. Because lost people matter to God, they matter to us. We go to serve, not to be served. We work where the gospel is least known because we have been commanded to do so, and because people?s ultimate need is to find eternal life through a personal relationship with God. 5. Lifelong learners. Character and competence are both indispensable. None of us starts with complete maturity or fully developed skills. Through lifelong learning and development, we increase our effectiveness and become what God already knows we can be. We seek to empower all TEAM personnel to reach their full potential. 6. Caring community. People are our most valuable asset. We in TEAM relate to each other in a community characterized by unity, trust, acceptance and diversity, linking arms with God?s people wherever we find them. We are accountable to one another, evaluating ourselves regularly. The more we are a caring community, the more we demonstrate peace and brotherhood to a world torn apart by divisive hatreds.

Organizational Statement of Faith


F R O M E V E R Y W H E R E T O E V E R Y W H E R E The Evangelical Alliance Mission PO Box 969 Wheaton, IL 60189-0969 www.teamworld.org info@teamworld.org 800.343.3144 TEAM Statement of Faith TEAM is an evangelical, non-denominational, international mission whose purpose is to help churches send missionaries to establish reproducing churches in other nations to the glory of God. TEAM has over 750 missionaries serving in more than 40 countries. TEAM Statement of Faith ? We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith, life, and conduct. ? We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ? We believe Jesus Christ, without any change in His eternal deity, became man through conception by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth, that He died on the cross, a perfect and complete sacrifice, in our stead and for our sins according to the Scriptures. He arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate. ? We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict of sin and regenerate the sinner upon believing in Christ, at the time of regeneration baptizing the believer into the one body of which Christ is the Head; and to indwell, guide, instruct, fill, and empower the believer for godly living and service. ? We believe that man was directly created by God in His own image, but fell into sin. The entire human race is, therefore, lost and only through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and regeneration of the Holy Spirit, can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. ? We believe that the atoning death of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground of justification and salvation for all who believe, and that only such as receive Jesus Christ by personal faith are born of the Holy Spirit and by Him are sealed to the day of redemption. ? We believe in the personal, premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that the hope of His appearing has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. ? We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting and conscious punishment. ? We believe that the Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. ? We believe that water baptism and the Lord?s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation. ? We believe that all the saved should live in such manner as will honor and glorify and not bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord, and that it is commanded of God to remain separate from false doctrines, and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations. ? We believe in the existence of angels who worship God and minister to believers. We also believe in the existence of Satan, the devil, a fallen angelic being, who with his demons opposes God, His people, and His work, but over whom Christians can have spiritual victory.
