In addition to our own missionaries, we do support some organizations utilizing the following criteria as a foundation for selection:
1. Because biblical missions are always done by the blessing and authority of the Church, we must have a well-developed relationship with our mission partners and share in the same biblical beliefs.
2. We strongly support Christ centered missions who point to Jesus - this is our biblical example. Acts of kindness and generosity, while of some value, are insufficient in themselves without a knowledge of Jesus. Special attention is given to those ministries possessing a 501c3 designation.
3. We support mission organizations who are focusing their attention on places where the Gospel has not yet been heard or churches have not yet been planted.
4. We are extremely wary of Christian vacations dressed up as missions. Churches in America spend millions of dollars sending people to countries where they do not know the language or culture to do work already being accomplished, and who themselves are ill prepared to articulate and preach the gospel - the very point of biblical missionary work.
