World Orphans

View 1 short-term mission trips from this organization »

World Orphans Journey Trips exist to encourage, educate and empower individuals to be lifelong orphan advocates in response to God’s command in Isaiah 1:17 to defend the oppressed and to take up the cause of the fatherless.

When you go on a Journey Trip with World Orphans you’ll study God’s heart for the vulnerable before the trip, and see it lived out on the trip. You will grow in appreciation for working alongside local churches to empower families, and we pray you will become a life-long advocate of God’s heart to set the lonely in families (Psalm 68). We would love to have you join us!

Doctrinal Statement

Our board of directors and staff commit ourselves without reservation to the following statement of faith:


— the Bible to be the Word of God verbally inspired and wholly without error in all that it declares and therefore is the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
— in the one true triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
— in the virgin birth and the deity of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who is also the Son of Man.
— that the death of Jesus Christ on the cross made atonement for the sins of the world, effective for all who repent and believe.
— in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, which insures the resurrection of all believers who have received God’s gift of eternal life.
— that Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His kingdom.
— that man was originally created in the image of God, that he fell into sin through the first Adam, and that he is responsible for all sin that causes him to be separated from God and lost eternally.
— that the Holy Spirit indwells all who receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
— that all Christians are called to good works and are in the world, but are separate from it.
— that Christians are called to witness for Christ and to preach the gospel to all nations.
