Short-Term Missions Trip Policy

Awana International Canada is excited to offer short-term mission experiences to Awana alumni and/or leaders. Please understand it is no one's "right" to participate in one of our outreaches. It is however, a "privilege" to be chosen to participate. It is the responsibility of the Awana Canada Executive Director and staff to ultimately decide to accept an applicant for a short-term mission team. Sending people into another nation and culture to preach the gospel of Christ is not to be taken lightly. It is our responsibility to provide the best possible experience for each team.

Thank you for prayerfully considering one of our Short-Term International Mission Trips.

    The Bible: We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is supernaturally inspired, so that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal and plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.

    God: We believe in one God that eternally exists and reveals Himself in three persons - Father, Son, Holy Spirit - having each the same nature, attributes and perfections, worthy of the same worship and confidence. We believe in God as absolute and sole Creator and Sustainer of the universe, and that creation was by divine command, from nothing and not through an evolutionary process. We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.

    God the Son: We believe that Jesus Christ was fully God in the flesh and fully man, that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and performed mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four gospels. We believe that He was crucified, shed His blood, died to pay the penalty for our sins and was raised bodily from the dead on the third day. Forty days later He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is Head of the Church and intercedes for believers. From there He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.

    God the Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person and is God, possessing all the divine attributes. He convicts of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, filling them in response to yieldedness with the goal of conforming them to the image of Christ.

    Man: We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature and became alienated from God. We believe that all men are morally corrupt, and of themselves utterly unable to remedy their lost condition.

    Salvation: We believe that salvation is a gift of God and is received by man through personal faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin. We believe that man is justified by grace through faith apart from works and that all true believers, once saved, are kept secure in Christ forever.

    The Church: We believe that the true Church is composed of all persons who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit through saving faith in Jesus Christ; that they are united together in the body of Christ of which He is Lord and Head; and are commissioned for the God-given tasks of worshipping, fellowshipping, teaching, evangelizing and exercising the spiritual gifts. We believe that the establishment and continuance of the local church is clearly taught in the New Testament Scriptures. We believe that the local church is autonomous and free of any external authority or control.

    The Ordinances: We believe the ordinances for the believer are water baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper as a memorial. They are, however, not to be regarded as a means of salvation. But both of which are an evidence of obedience and fellowship with the Lord.

    The Christian Life: We believe that a Christian should walk in holiness and not after the flesh, with the goal of being conformed to the image of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. As a new creation, walking in the Spirit, the Christian learns to grow in faith, in obedience to Scripture, in prayer, in fellowship with the saints and in a life of service. We believe that the Christian will stand before the judgement seat of Christ to have his life evaluated according to his deeds.

    The Second Coming: We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting glory and the unbeliever to judgement and everlasting conscious punishment.
