We are an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting Jesus personally to this generation, to mobilizing as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission. As citizens of God’s kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole Gospel to people throughout the whole world.

We of Youth With A Mission believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God’s son, that people are created in God’s image, that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ, that although all people have sinned and come short of His glory God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that repentance, faith, love, and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us, that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, and that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment: “…Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature,” (Mark 16:15). 

 

The Christian Magna Carta -

The following Christian Magna Carta, developed in 1981 by YWAM leaders, expresses what we believe is an individual’s basic rights implicit in the Gospel. Because God so loved the world that He gave His own Son, everyone on earth has the right for an opportunity to:

  • Hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ

  • Have the Bible available in his own language

  • Have a Christian fellowship nearby to be able to meet, have biblical teaching, prayer, and worship with others in the Body of Christ

  • Have a Christian education available

  • Have the basic necessities of life- food, water, clothing, shelter, and health care

  • Lead a productive life of fulfillment spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically
