Youth With A Mission Asheville

Beliefs

Youth With A Mission affirms the Christian Magna Carta, which describes the following basic rights as implicit in the gospel.

Everyone on earth has the right to:

  • Hear and understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Have a Bible available in their own language.
  • Have a Christian fellowship available nearby, to be able to meet for fellowship regularly each week, and to have Biblical teaching and worship with others in the body of Christ.
  • Have a Christian education available for their children.
  • Have the basic necessities of life: food, water, clothing, shelter and health care.
  • Lead a productive life of fulfillment spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically.

We commit ourselves, by God’s grace, to fulfill this covenant and to live for His glory. (Developed by YWAM leaders, 1981)

Youth With A Mission affirms the Bible as the authoritative word of God and, with the Holy Spirit’s inspiration, the absolute reference point for every aspect of life and ministry.

Foundational Values

These shared beliefs and values are the guiding principles for both the past and future growth of our mission. Some are common to all Christians everywhere; others are distinctive to Youth With A Mission.

The combination of these beliefs and values make up the unique family characteristics of YWAM – our “DNA.” They are values we hold in high regard which determine who we are, how we live and how we make decisions.
