Purpose

Ninos de Mexico ("Ninos") was incorporated as Children of Mexico, Inc. and is a ministry engaged in the evangelism of Mexico and in the providing of care to some of the helpless, orphaned, abandoned and homeless children of Mexico. Children are brought into a Christian home to be loved, fed, clothed and educated. Ninos currently operates 8 homes, Medical outreaches, and 4 church plants in the mountain areas of Puebla, and the establishment of 5 additional churches in the Mexico City Metro area.

Ninos has a child sponsorship program, $25/monthly, called HUGS (Helping the Underprivileged Get Started.) This has been developed to provide a direct link for a child with a supporter; and encourages mentoring relationships that demonstrate God's love. Short-term mission groups visit on-site for one-week time slots throughout the Spring and Summer to serve at the mission and help maintain our homes and get to know the children. Check out the website for ways and opportunities to become involved.

This organization is a nonprofit, contributions to it are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. It is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).


Mission statement

Mission Statement:
Ninos exists to share the Gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by raising at-risk children in Mexico to love God and grow to be mature educated Spirit-filled Christian with the ability and passion to evangelize their culture.

VISION:
To be a Christian mission focused on caring for orphans (James 1:27) and encouraging growth in the local church (Acts 2:47).


Statement of faith

Ninos de Mexico subscribes to the following doctrinal statement:

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Forgiveness of sin and salvation come through the blood of Christ, upon our faith, repentance, confession, and baptism by immersion into Christ.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and we accept it as our rule of faith. The bonds of our brotherhood are established by acceptance of the authority of the Word of God as our sole and only rule of faith and Christ as Lord of life. In scriptural essentials - unity. In issues of opinion - liberty. In all things - love.
