Purpose

World Compassion Terry Law Ministries (WCTLM) is a non-denominational, faith-based international organization. It was founded by Dr. Terry Law in 1969 to assist churches in meeting the physical and spiritual needs of people in their communities. Dr. Law feels strongly that the calling of the organization is to areas of the earth where most men fear going due to political, religious and/or economic instability.

WCTLM adheres to eight core values. These core values are the essential standards that direct World Compassion's ministry deeds. The core values are their reason for existence and each member strives to achieve them in their personal as well as professional lives.

  • We are Christian.
  • We are committed to people in need.
  • We value relationships.
  • We are trustworthy stewards of God's resources.
  • We work in cooperation with other organizations.
  • We are quick to respond to a need.
  • We value a single life coming to faith whether through evangelism or humanitarian efforts.
  • We must share God's concern for justice and reconciliation and for the liberation of men, women and children from every kind of oppression.
  • We adhere to Romans 15:20-21 which says, "It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation. Rather, as it is written: 'Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand."

Mission statement

World Compassion Terry Law Ministries uses the following to express its mission:

World Compassion Terry Law Ministries is a global alliance of Christians whose mission is to go with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to nations that are difficult to access, working with the oppressed and disadvantaged to support the physical and spiritual transformation of lives.


Statement of faith

WCTLM uses the following to express its Statement of Faith:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 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. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. 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. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Dr. Terry Law was a signatory to the Lausanne Covenant created by the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelism, and World Compassion Terry Law Ministries subscribes to the covenant.
