OUR story

Since 1997, VisionTrust International (VTI) has worked to provide care and ministry to vulnerable children in extreme poverty situations. Read on to discover our mission, story, and people who make it all possible.


We invest in the development of vulnerable children, equipping them to grow into mature Christians. We do this by empowering local Christian leaders to meet the health, education, and spiritual development needs of these children so they can thrive in and positively impact their communities.

Statement Of Faith

VisionTrust was founded as an extension of faith — to go forth and serve, particularly the most vulnerable among us. This means:

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His vicarious and atoning death, 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 the salvation of lost and sinful men is by the grace of God through faith in Christ and that 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 the lost. They that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal separation from God.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
