Statement of faith

Pacific Island Ministries expresses its statement of faith as follows:

The Scriptures, the Bible, are the Word of God and divinely inspired, true and absolutely trustworthy; therefore they have authority over everyone's life in every respect.

God exists as the one eternal God, Creator and Lord of the universe, who, in the unity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, governs all things according to His will and accomplishes His purposes in the world and in the church.

Man has fallen from fellowship with God by the disobedience of man's first parents Adam and Eve, and, therefore, suffers in a depraved state in need of regeneration and sanctification by the Holy Spirit.

God intervened in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who being born of a virgin, made atonement for man's sins by his death and the shedding of blood on the cross, rose bodily again on the third day, to ascend and to rule at the right hand of the Father.

Only by repentance and believing that his personal sins are forgiven in Christ's sacrifice is man restored by grace to communion with God and has the power in the person of the Holy Spirit to be transformed into God's likeness.

Christ will return when God's purposes are completed to raise both the righteous and the unrighteous for judgment to reward and to punish man according to his works.

God grants everlasting life and glorious, eternal fellowship for those who are saved, and assigns eternal punishment to those who are not.

Response from ministry

Letter from Orneal Kooyers - February 25th, 2005

Enclosed is the information you request. Also enclosed is our bill for provided the material. In addition, I request you attach the following information with any information you send out to donors regarding this mission.

We do not believe that Wall Watchers accomplishes any worthwhile purpose in assessing and making known information about Pacific Island Ministries for the following reasons.

  1. Donors and any one else can contact PIM for any information whatsoever and it will be supplied.
  2. Wall Watchers does not have the foggiest notion of what PIM accomplishes in its God given assignment.
  3. From a few figures submitted to the proper authorities Wall Watchers draws its own biased conclusions that suit their particular ideology.
  4. The Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability, of which PIM is a charter member, is wholly sufficient to assess the doings and accomplishments of PIM.
Sincerely, Orneal Kooyers, Founder
