Beloved International is a Christian organization dedicated to bringing orphans the hope of spiritual adoption into God’s family through the gift of earthly adoption into a Christian home.
PHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY
Beloved International is a non-denominational, gospel-centered ministry founded on these biblical truths:
1. The Gospel of Jesus Christ reconciles sinful persons to a holy God (John 3:16)
2. Believers of this gospel are adopted as the children of God (Ephesians 1:5)
3. God called Christians to love others by serving them and pointing them to Jesus Christ (1 John 4:7, Luke 6:27-31, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20)
4. Caring for orphans is a means of practicing pure and undefiled religion (James 1:27)
Beloved International creates avenues for Christian couples with hearts for orphan care to transform lives through adoption. We achieve this purpose with a three-fold philosophy of ministry.
Orphans who belong to a family have support, comfort and security. Orphan care has developed into two forms: institutional orphanages and family homes. We find that Scripture places a strong emphasis on the need for godly parenting to raise children in the Lord (Colossians 3:18-21, Ephesians 6:1-4). Therefore, we chose the family home, in which Christian parents raise orphans as their own adopted children. We firmly believe that a genuine sense of security begins with the identities of these children are reformed from orphans to sons and daughters.
A healthy home is built on solid parenting. However, modern orphan care has become an institutionalized system dependent on international aid. We believe that this system is ultimately unsustainable. Moreover, institutional care does not depict a biblical family, in which the parents - not international donors - care for their children (1 Timothy 5:8, Luke 11:11-13, Proverbs 31:15). Capable families need to be equipped with tools, skills and abilities so that they may develop into self-sustaining homes.
Our greatest desire is that these children will one day believe in Jesus Christ. Adoption is a wonderful picture of the gospel - the death of Jesus Christ gives sinners an opportunity to restore a relationship as adopted children of God (Ephesians 2:8-10, John 6:47-51, John 14:1-4). We adopt orphans into Christian households so that their parents may love them with the love of Christ and they may enjoy the fellowship of a local church. We want our children to develop a heart to spread the gospel and to make disciples in their communities (Matthew 28:13), even as we use these adoption stories as a means to spread the gospel and to make disciples in our communities.
Established in 2010, Beloved International is a faith-based, non-profit organization that creates avenues for Christian couples with hearts for orphan care to transform lives through adoption.
