The Christian Magna Carta

Christian Magna Carta

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)

The Foundational Values of Youth With A Mission

 

The Foundational Values of Youth With A Mission

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) 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. Based upon God's word, who He is, and His initiative of salvation, the following responses are strongly emphasized in YWAM:

 

Worship: We are called to praise and worship God alone

Holiness: We are called to lead holy and righteous lives that exemplify the nature and character of God

Witness: We are called to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who do not know Him

Prayer: We are called to engage in intercessory prayer for the people and causes on God's heart, including standing against evil in every form

Fellowship: We are called to commit to the Church in both its local nurturing expression and its mobile multiplying expression.

Youth With A Mission

Logotx72

Youth With A Mission is an international, interdenominational movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced "WHY-wham"), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.

When YWAM began in 1960, our main focus was giving young people opportunities to demonstrate the love of Jesus to the whole world, according to His command in Mark 16:15. Today, we still focus on youth, but we have members (known as “YWAMers”) of almost every age, and many of our short-term efforts have grown into long-term endeavors that have impacted lives and nations.

YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, conveying the message of the gospel, and caring for those in need. We are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of nearly 18,000.
