Statement of Faith
WGO is a protestant, non-denominational, evangelical ministry. Our Honduran staff, our full-time missionaries and our North American teams are comprised of people representing many denominational backgrounds. While there may be some doctrinal differences, we choose to lay those differences aside. What we will not compromise on are the essential truths of the Person and Work of Jesus Christ as revealed in Scripture. We choose to unite around and unreservedly adhere to these truths. We ask all who come to serve in submission to these same truths listed below.
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, was true God and true man, existing in one person and was without sin. We believe in His representative and substitutionary sacrifice, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Heavenly Father, His present life as Lord of all, High Priest, and Advocate, and His imminent personal return in power and glory.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives life to believers, enables them to understand and apply the Scriptures, empowers them for godly living, and equips them for service and witness.
WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original documents, fully trustworthy, and the final authority in all matters of faith and life in Christ Jesus.
WE BELIEVE that each member of the human race is fallen, sinful and lost, that the shed blood and the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ provides the only ground for forgiveness of sins and justification to all who receive Him by faith, and that only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can they become children of God.
WE BELIEVE that the one, holy universal Church is the body of Christ, composed of all regenerate people. This redeemed community worships God and seeks to proclaim the Good News to all people.
WE BELIEVE in the imminent return of Jesus Christ, in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost provides the only ground for forgiveness of sins and justification to all who
receive Him by faith, and that only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can they become children of God.
WE BELIEVE marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman.
WHAT ARE WE ABOUT?
WGO Vision statement: “Impacting the faith of Christ followers through serving and evangelizing children and the poor.”
WHY ARE WE PURSUING THIS VISION?
We are driven to pursue this vision because of three fundamental Biblical mandates:
1.To care for the poor, especially the widows and orphans (James 1:27).
2.To be fishers of men and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost (Matthew 4:19).
3.To be accountable before God for how we meet the needs of others (Matthew 25:31-46).
HOW ARE WE ACCOMPLISHING THIS VISION?
We are accomplishing this vision by engaging in three areas of ministry:
2.Rancho Ebenezer Children’s Ministry
3.Impact on the North American Believer
