As a member of the Heart of God International Ministries network, Heart of God India is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, organized and governed by volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Heart of God India is honored to partner together with like-minded organizations to demonstrate the eternal love of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit opens the doors. By working through local and indigenous leaders, we make every effort to encourage, strengthen and equip those God has called to minister among their own people. It is never our intention to replace them; God called them to be a light within their villages and communities in a way that we never could. Our prayer is that you, as a friend and partner in the Kingdom of God at work in India, will help us be that example of God’s steadfast love to all as we embrace those to whom He leads us — the destitute, the rejected, the broken, and the oppressed. There are endless opportunities in India where there are so many needs represented among such a wide variety of people groups.
Heart of God India is an evangelistic ministry; everything we do points to and communicates the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that we, as the Body of Christ, are commanded to "go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all living creatures” according to the Great Commission. This is why we go to such lengths to train and equip indigenous pastors and Christian leaders in the Word of God, especially in the face of great opposition from religious leaders who teach a watered-down or false gospel. While Heart of God India never offers humanitarian assistance without clearly expressing the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, we strive to maintain a balance weighing heavily on the side of evangelism and minoring on humanitarian relief efforts, all to the Glory of God.
Pray with us, partner with us, join us as we pursue God’s will in and for India!
According to the Great Commission, Heart of God International Ministries, Inc. has been called to increase and strengthen the Kingdom of God through teaching, preaching, and making disciples using whatever means are available to accomplish this weighty task.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20) “ Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
Furthermore, God has commissioned Heart of God International Ministries, Inc. to be about building up and strengthening the global Body of Christ.
“Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” (Romans 12:10-12)
According to these two mandates of ministry, Heart of God International Ministries, Inc. is called to encourage, strengthen, and build the Body of Christ according to the admonition and instruction we receive in the Word of God. In so doing, we are committed to carry the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.
Our mission is to enlist men and women from across the globe to live the Word of God, to love the Word of God, and to minister the Word of God according to the gifts and talents they have been given. All this is being done that God might be glorified and exalted throughout the earth.
International, National and Local Evangelism Taking the Great Commission seriously, it is HGIM’s objective to not only reach outside the borders of these United States to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but also acknowledge the need for local/domestic evangelism. By use of a variety of ministry outreaches and techniques, HGIM is able to reach more people both globally and locally.
Discipleship Jesus was very explicit in his instruction to the disciples to tend to discipleship … not only telling the Good News to all creatures, but feeding the sheep. HGIM is dedicated to see to the salvation and spiritual maturity of God’s people through joint efforts with the local and international Body of Christ by providing the means for discipleship through teaching and preaching, development of discipleship materials, and by demonstrating Christlikeness in the home, church, and global community.
Sustainability By enlisting the help of local partners and associates, HGIM’s goal is ultimately God-dependence as opposed to man-dependence. By employing a variety of opportunities for sustainability, each network ministry takes particular care to seize every opportunity to not only provide for the present need, but to teach skills so future needs are met. This is accomplished through an ongoing process of implementing a variety of programs geared to the locale, culture, and need including training in administration and budgeting, along with skillful work incorporating a growing understanding of how to ensure supply chain management. This objective will continue to give God His glory by wisely investing in the right assets to become self-sustaining after we've completed our initial work.
Enabling Gifts Every person has value and purpose in the Kingdom of God; every believer has been given gifts to strengthen, bless and encourage the Body of Christ. HGIM seeks out opportunities to make way for individuals’ Spirit-given gifts to be cultivated, nurtured, and used in an atmosphere conducive to individual and corporate growth.
