Romans 10:9 - "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
Our mission is to teach the word of God, minister to the lost, and lead them to salvation. It is through the belief in Jesus Christ that lives are changed. In Matthew 19:26, Jesus said, "with man this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible."
The teaching of the gospel provides the Christian foundation for people to change their lives and equips them with the fundamental Christian values to positively influence their community.
God has called us to "go unto all the world and make disciples." He has placed a vision and call upon us to influence the lives of poverty-striken families in the Dominican Republic, particularly those who have been victims of human trafficking. By meeting physical needs, such as food, clothing, and clean water, we will build a relationship of trust. Through the ministry of the Gospel, we will offer hope, healing and restoration; bringing souls into His Kingdom. Through education, we will equip them with the skills necessary to lead productive and purposeful lives; thus allowing them to have positive impacts in their country.
The education system in the Dominican Republic ranks next to last in the world. A poor educational system leads to high unemployment, poverty, illiteracy, physical abuse, drug & alcohol use, and gang membership. These factors are all individual causes of rising human trafficking within the Caribbean, particularly the Dominican Republic. There are external and global factors as well, some of which include the global demand for domestic servants, agricultural workers, and factory labor; political, social, or economic crises; natural disasters, public corruption, lack of government interest, and the limited economic opportunities.
