Praying Pelican Missions
Praying Pelican Missions is a short-term international missions organization serving the needs of indigenous local churches, pastors, and communities around the world. We set up and lead mission trips for churches, small groups, families, and individuals from North America, continually expanding and strengthening a network of pastors and communities both abroad and in the United States. Each year as lives are touched and hearts are transformed, there is an increasing number of pastors, churches, and communities inviting mission teams to serve alongside them through Praying Pelican Missions. We are continually amazed to witness and be part of God's movement in the world, from Chicago to Costa Rica to South Africa and everywhere in between.

The bridge between cultures, in Christ's name.
At the core of who we are and what we stand for is our statement of faith. The following statements outline what we at Praying Pelican Missions believe.
There is only one triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and was sent to earth in human flesh. He lived a perfect and sinless life, and died on the cross to take away the sins of the world.
All humans are sinful, and the only way to eternal life is through personally accepting Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross for our sins.
All who believe in the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ are a part of God's church that reaches over the entire world.
We believe in The Apostles' Creed:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
