ABOUT OUR MINISTRY

Welcome to Endure International!

Endure International is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 with the aim of sustaining and assisting Christian believers and churches throughout the Middle East in their life and witness.

Every activity undertaken, from gospel radio to global television; from medical missions to refugee work; from assistance to the persecuted to pastoral training and everything in between aim to fulfill the Great Commission of leading seekers to the Lord, baptizing and making them disciples, then forming new local churches.

We strongly believe that God is in the business of building His church. We take that very seriously, to the extent that we also have set it as our goal, which is:

17To help establish viable, reproductive, Biblically-sound and self-supporting churches in every major city across the Middle East

General principles that define our philosophy of ministry:

From the heart of the Middle East, the message of Christ traveled in every direction. The first church was birthed in Jerusalem, and soon after branched off in Antioch, then in Asia Minor, modern-day Turkey, and then to innumerable locations across the Middle East and beyond.

Two thousand years later, things have dramatically changed. The numbers of Christians across the region have since dwindled. In many cases the Church has all but survived; whereas in the land of its birth, the ratio of Christians to non-Christians is at an all time low of just 1%. The reasons for the general decline of Christians and of the church in the region are varied.

The Bible

The Bible will always be the only foundation to all aspects of Endure International, its priorities, policies and practices.

Believers

It is our conviction that indigenous believers should be given ownership of reaching their own people for Christ, and of planting churches. The role of foreign missions is to equip them to carry out these responsibilities.

Commitment

Though we realize that there may be extreme cases when indigenous believers will be forced to leave their countries; that will never be our emphasis or priority. We are committed to do everything in our power to provide the moral and spiritual support believers need in such cases. Securing a foreign safe haven is our last resort.

The Church

God’s unique agent for missions in the world is the church. Therefore, the role of the church is unique and central in world history. That is why Endure International strongly affirms its attachment to the church both at home and abroad, seeking where and when possible to partner with, minister to and through the local church.

Partnership

We are committed to work in partnership with like-minded Evangelical organizations and churches, as long as we each forgo our personal agendas and work to meet the needs of the local church. We exist to serve the interests of the local church and to seek its welfare, not ours.

People Groups

Endure International is committed to work with every people group in the Middle East where God is at work without discrimination.
