C: What We Believe

1. Mission Statement

LifeFORCE exists for the purpose of training and empowering young people to effectively and creatively preach the gospel throughout the world and to make disciples.

LifeFORCE fulfills its mandate by discipling soul winners. Our philosophy is "youth winning youth" through the power of the Holy Spirit and the use of creative evangelism. We equip those who are 18 years of age and older in a wide variety of ministry and communication skills. Most of this equipping takes place "on the job" as our teams consistently witness to young people during a four month tour. It is our desire that what is learned at LifeFORCE will continually be applied throughout our team members' lives as they actively build the Kingdom of God.
