Mission Statement 

Our mission is to become a light and witness of the Gospel to every creature by declaring that Jesus Christ is Lord. We seek to make a difference through spiritual, educational, vocational, outreach clinical care and other humanitarian assistance whereby fallen man can return to God, and local churches will become disciplined in evangelistic mission ministry.

LEM believes:

    • The Bible is the infallible Word of God. It is the supreme standard for all human conduct (2 Timothy 3:16). LEM prefers using the King James Version.
    • In the Trinity–God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
    • In God’s six-day creation.
    • In Christ’s virgin birth, ministry, death, burial, resurrection, ascension and His promise to return (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:9).
    • In the salvation of a depraved sinner and that only by grace, through faith in Christ Jesus may he be saved.
    • That Jesus is the begotten son of God and that Jesus is God (John 3:16)
    • That only through the blood of Jesus Christ may a sinner be delivered from sin (1 Peter 1:18-21 and 3:18; Romans 5:9; Matthew 22:28).

As a ministry and not-for-profit organization, LEM strives to act responsibly for the development of the ministry, to have connectedness and flow of communications among contributors and staff, and to keep our vision and purpose at heart. We strive to make things happen through the guidance and grace of God.
