Our Vision: To be a Christian mission focused on caring for orphans (James 1:27) and encouraging growth in the local church (Acts 2:47).
Our Mission: Niños exists to share the Gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by raising at-risk children in Mexico to love God and grow to be mature educated Spirit-filled Christians with the ability and passion to evangelize their culture.
Commentary on the Niños Mission Statement: “…share the Gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ…” Following the commandment of Jesus, Niños is committed to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey all that He has commanded. Evangelizing the lost with the saving grace of Jesus Christ is Niños’ number one priority. —Matthew 28:18-20
“…with as many people as possible…” Niños may be strategically located near Mexico City, Mexico, but alumni and staff also interact with people living elsewhere. The focus is Mexico; the desired influential outcome through the children is ultimately worldwide. —Acts 1:8
“…by raising at-risk children in Mexico…” Since 1967, the core of Niños’ ministry has involved caring for the abandoned, abused, or orphaned children of Mexico. —James 1:27
“…to love God…” Among all the educational and professional aspirations Niños has for each and every one of the children who come to live at the homes, the number one goal is for the children to know God and love Him. —Matthew 22:37-38
“…and grow to be mature educated…” Education for the children is of the utmost importance to Niños. To advance in Mexico and have an influence on society, a quality education is almost essential. Niños hopes the children grow into mature productive citizens. —1 Corinthians 13:11
“…Spirit-filled Christians with the ability and passion to evangelize…” Niños hopes each one of the children accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and in turn has a passion to tell others. Niños strives to teach the children how to be firm in their faith and share their faith with others. —Romans 10:14-15
“…their culture”. Although Niños is located in Mexico and the children are Mexican citizens, many will relocate during their lifetime. The desire is for them to continue to evangelize their culture, no matter where they go. —Isaiah 6:8
