Agape International Missions (AIM) is a Christ-led, non-denominational, not-for-profit organization that exists to glorify God through our dedicated efforts to love, protect, and care for survivors of trafficking as well as other vulnerable and exploited individuals.

Through a holistic approach of rescuing, restoring and reintegrating survivors of trafficking and preventing sexual slavery, AIM seeks to meet survivors' spiritual, emotional, social, educational and physical needs. Our intention is that they may come to know their worth and value in Christ, develop a dependence on Him, and develop skills for a sustainable life.

Statement of faith

1. All for God's Glory: AIM serves to glorify God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 4:7-11; Eph 1:11-14)

2. The Greatest Needs of All Human Kind: The greatest need for all human kind is forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life. (Rom 5:1-11, 3:21-26; John 4:13-14, 6:22-40; John 14:6; Eph 1:7, 2:1-10)

3. Living to Love: The greatest command is to love God, and to love others as ourselves - just as Jesus loves us. (1 Corinthians 13; Matthew 22:37-40)

4. Jesus Is Our Example for Living: The greatest command is to love God, and to love others as ourselves - just as Jesus loves us. (1 Corinthians 13; Matthew 22:37-40)

5. The Power of the Holy Spirit: It is by the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in believers, that AIM carries out its work. (Ephesians 3:20-21; Romans 8:9-11)

6. The Church: The Church is the body of Christ with Him as head. The church proclaims the Gospel for spiritual and personal transformation. It is through the Church that God cares for the disadvantaged and exploited. (Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:17-20; Romans 6:12-14; James 1:27; Ps 82:3-4)

8. Prayer: It is by prayer that we discern the will of God. Through prayer we seek guidance in ministry and provision for ministry. God desires that we ask, and will provide according to His will more than we can ask and imagine. (John 14:13; Matthew 7:7-11; Ephesians 3:20-21)

9. Dependence on God: All resources belong to God and come from God. He will supply from his unlimited resources all we need to carry out His work. (Psalm 50:10; Philippians 4:19) (Gen 1:27; Rom 1:16-31; Matt 19:1-12)

When our founders Don and Bridget Brewster heard that little children were being sold for sex every night, they did not turn their backs. They moved to Cambodia to help fight for freedom and stand up for the oppressed. Visit to watch a video of their story.

Program accomplishments

Our community of abolitionists has rescued more than 1500 survivors of trafficking and exploitation.
