Praying Pelican Missions
Praying Pelican Missions aims to give missions groups the opportunity to make a long-term, genuine impact on a local community. When a team joins us for a mission trip, groups work directly alongside local ministries where you can help to meet real needs. Praying Pelican Missions believes that healthy short-term mission trips are possible by building upon genuine partnerships, long-term relationships, and sustainable ministry. Praying Pelican Missions serves as a bridge, connecting local churches from around the world. For over 15 years, PPM teams have been encouraging and assisting local ministries in what they are doing in their communities. 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 - from Chicago to Costa Rica to South Africa and everywhere in between.

Connecting the local church on a global level through short-term mission trips
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.
