We Stand Together
NMSI missionaries and board members believe and proclaim:
- We believe the Bible to be inspired by God, without error in its original manuscripts and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
- We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Godhead and that He became a man by virgin birth, lived a sinless life, died to vicariously atone for the sins of all people, was resurrected from death in bodily form, ascended into heaven and will return in power and glory to receive all those who are His own.
- We believe that all people have sinned, falling short of the glory of God, and that their salvation is by God's grace through faith in Christ Jesus, and that He is the only way to be reconciled to God. All who reject Christ are lost.
- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and the church is empowered to fulfill Christ's commission to go into all the world proclaiming His salvation and make disciples.
- We believe in the eventual bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost at Christ's triumphant return. The saved will be resurrected to an eternal life without sickness, sorrow or death. The lost will be resurrected to eternal condemnation.
- We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. This unity is expressed through participation in the body of Christ.

How we minister...
New Mission Systems International is serious about listening to God for His leading. The simple question asked is,
"What is God calling you to do?"
NMSI believes that discerning God's will is primary, followed by people committed to living out God's calling with excellence.
Proclaiming Christ and making disciples drives our decision-making. Seeing the Gospel lived out to its fullness through vibrant Christian communities where the Gospel is preached through our words and the way we live. The scriptures teach us that our relationship to God is demonstrated through our relationship with others.
God created us as whole beings - physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional. We believe the gospel transforms individuals and communities and solving one issue or need does not solve everything. NMSI ministers in a holistic approach, seeking to support individuals in their spiritual, social, economic, physical, or educational needs.
No call gets left out. We may defer to another organization better able to accomplish certain ministry, but we will talk to anyone about his or her call and will seek to assist individuals to find a platform to fulfill his or her calling in God. God has called and gifted us all for a specific purpose in His Kingdom. As we respond to His call (Eph. 2:10) we join with God to restore His dominion on earth. He will see us through if we are faithful, not only the missionaries we send, but those who do the sending through our financial support and prayer.
Collaborative to our very core, we honor leadership but value the process God uses in a multiplicity of Godly voices speaking in unity. This means that we lead from a position of strength together. Our commitment is to discern how we can best glorify God in proclaiming Him and the gospel message of Jesus Christ in this community.
NMSI is driven by the heart of God to reach the whole world in practical, incarnational ways. With no central national focus, NMSI is an internationally distributed missional community.
More than just a group-over-individual orientation, NMSI is building a globally distributed community tied together by our love of Christ and our desire for the unity only He can provide. When we are together, the modality of community is rich, deep and participative. NMSI is committed to serving together, to being one with each other in ministry, to being one with the Father, empowering national leaders, and connecting the members of the body of Christ to the command of Christ to make disciples of all nations.Strategic Opportunities
