Summary

Advancing Native Missions (ANM) exists for one purpose: to help take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world's remaining unreached peoples. ANM does this by standing behind 3,500+ indigenous or native missionaries who are reaching their own people in more than 80 countries of the world.

Today, more than 80% of world evangelization is being carried out by native missionaries, who have free access to all regions of the world-including those closed to foreign missionaries.

Mission statement

Advancing Native Missions's Mission Statement is:

Advancing Native Missions has been called to seek out, evaluate, and support native missions groups who have a clear and defined evangelical statement of faith, who are open and transparent in their finances, and who are working among unreached people groups. We share information about these native missions with evangelical churches and individuals in North America who are willing to pray and give for the advancement of God's Kingdom through these ministries. Visiting native mission leaders work with ANM to declare God's Word to the churches of North America and inspire them to be actively involved in missions at home and abroad. Through the coordination of Vision Trips, ANM puts individuals in a unique position to get a first-hand view of the life and spirit of native missions throughout the world. We purpose to be open and transparent before both God and man in the stewardship of the gifts the Lord's people entrust to ANM.


Statement of faith

Advancing Native Missions, Inc. uses the following to express its Statement of Faith:

We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired word of God, inerrant in the original documents and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice;

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

We believe in the full deity and perfect humanity of our Lord, His representative and substitutionary sacrifice, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father's right hand, His present high priestly ministry, and His personal return in power and glory;

We believe in the regeneration by the Holy Spirit, which is absolutely necessary for the salvation of fallen, sinful, and lost mankind and which is a free gift of God's grace received by personal faith through Christ Jesus;

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 bodily resurrection of the just and unjust: those who are saved to everlasting blessedness, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation;

And that the universal church is composed of all true believers in Christ Jesus who are united in Him and to one another by the indwelling Holy Spirit. The chief functions of the church are to worship God and witness for the Lord Jesus Christ until He returns. The local church is composed of a group of believers in a specific locality who gather in Christ's name for the breaking of bread, prayers, fellowship and teaching.

History

ANM was founded in 1992 by Carl Gordon of USA, Rev. Benjamin Barredo of the Philippines, and Re. C.V. John of India. These three men partnered together to begin a new organization that would assist Third World national leaders and their people in the most effective and efficient manner, to respond to the large spiritual, financial and developmental challenges facing the Third World.

Since that time, God has brought many dedicated and talented men and women form around the U.S. and even around the world to join the ANM team, because they all shared in this same vision. Presently ANM has approximately 25 staff based in our U.S. headquarters, 3 staff based in India, and 1 in Indonesia.
