Mission/Vision Statement

Empower a Child seeks to bring confidence and self-sustainability to orphaned and vulnerable children of East Africa by teaching modern skills, giving the opportunity of education, and enlightening through the word of God.

Doctrinal Statement

WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE in the deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His outpoured blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return to power and glory.
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
WE BELIEVE the Bible to be inspired in its entirety by God’s Holy Spirit through human authors revealing God’s truth to humanity. It is without error in all that it affirms. Christians must therefore submit to its supreme authority.
WE BELIEVE in the personal and visible return in glory of the Lord Jesus Christ to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment in final completion.
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
