What We Believe

JMI’s Core Values


In all things we seek to honor Jesus Christ and love those we serve according to His Word.

The Church

We believe God intends to use the Church to care for the poor, orphaned, and forgotten. Therefore, JMI seeks to partner with churches and pastors whenever possible in order to accomplish our mission


We believe all people are valuable because they are made in the image of God. Therefore, we believe the giver and the receiver are equally blessed through our work.


We believe that every resource (financial and otherwise) entrusted to us is also a gift of God and must be managed with the highest level of integrity and accountability.

Statement of Beliefs

JMI is a vehicle for individuals and churches who want to make a tangible, personal difference on behalf of the poor, the orphaned, and the forgotten people of the world. The following basic beliefs are offered in order to help you determine if you would be comfortable partnering with JMI:

About God

We believe in one God who is the Creator and Redeemer of all things, the source of love and truth and who has expressed Himself most definitively in three persons—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3:16–17, John 14:9–10, 1 Peter 1:2

About Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s only Son, Savior of the world and model for a life lived for the glory of God.

Matthew 1:22–23, John 3:16, Romans 1:3–4

About the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is actively bringing about the purposes of God today and is given the opportunity to freely and redemptively express God’s intentions through us as we choose to follow Christ.

John 16:5–15, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 3:16

About the Bible

We believe everything the Bible says about itself.

Romans 15:4, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16

About Man

We believe that man was created to live in peace and fellowship with God and to expend our lives in the service of others. Any thought or action that does not measure up to that intention is an indication of our own brokenness, inability and unwillingness to achieve the purposes of God apart from his saving intervention in our lives.

Genesis 1:27, John 15:4, Acts 4:12

About Salvation

We believe salvation, (both the forgiveness of sins and the ability to become more of what God intended us to be), is a gift from God to man and comes only by grace through his sacrificial death for us all, through Jesus.

Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8–9, Titus 3:4–5

About Eternal Security

We believe that God freely gives man eternal life through Christ, a qualitative as well as quantitative measure of living. Followers of The Way and all those purchased by his sacrifice have a reason to trust and live out their salvation for now and eternity—not by their own efforts, but by the grace and power of God.

John 10:28–29, Romans 8:35–39, Hebrews 7:25
