Our Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be God-inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.


Holistic care is essential in order to raise healthy, well-rounded children who will become change agents in their countries. We seek to create an environment that meets our children’s basic needs, encourages their individual desires and passions, and promotes excellence in achievement. Children of the Nations is committed to caring for our children in four main areas: physical health, social welfare, spiritual care, and education. We are dedicated to working towards end results that have been established for each area of care – end results are COTN-International Board approved long-term goals that support COTN’s mission and vision.
