World Orphans

Founded 1993

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. Journey Trips also provide post-trip discipleship opportunities for individuals, teams, or churches to get involved with the ministry of World Orphans. World Orphans is a Christian ministry that is committed to rescuing orphaned children, supporting vulnerable families, strengthening the international church, and impacting communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through church-based orphan prevention, rescue, care, and transition programs in developing countries. When you take a Journey Trip with World Orphans, you take your first step to become a lifelong advocate for the orphan. Your experience begins with team discipleship that delves deep into the Scriptures that express God’s heart for the orphan, examines various issues surrounding the worldwide orphan crisis, and prepares you and your team for effective cross-cultural ministry. Each Journey Trip team serves in a developing country alongside local churches that are currently caring for orphans in their own community in partnership with World Orphans.

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.
