Mission Statement


Teen Missions is a pioneer of the concept of providing short-term missions experience for teens with confidence that as young people saw the mission field first-hand, they would see the pressing needs of the world.

Description


Teen Missions' first team went out in 1971 and since that time over 42,000 North American youth have assisted with a variety of evangelistic and building projects with over 200 established missions in over 110 countries. We exist to launch youth into lifetime missions involvement by training, discipling and mobilizing them to impact eternity around the world NOW. A large number of our alumni are in full-time Christian ministry serving the Lord worldwide as pastors, teachers, Christian authors and missionaries. Teen Missions has grown from one base in Merritt Island, Florida to a worldwide ministry with bases in over 25 countries. Each base runs at least one annual short-term mission program similar to the one in the United States, enabling native youth to be able to serve in their own countries.

Organizational Statement of Faith


1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. 2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in the three persons: The 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 and His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His tangible return in power and glory. 4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, 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 the body of the saved and 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 Christ. This doctrinal statement is taken from the doctrine statement of Youth For Christ and consistent with evangelical, interdenominational organizations.
