WHO WE ARE
Peru Mission is a strategic facilitator of urban church planting and Christian community development in Peru. We plant missional churches, raise up Christian leaders and develop transformational institutions. These vibrant, reformed churches are actively involved in bringing God’s justice, mercy, and peace to the world around them. Click here to read our Philosophy of Mission.
In 2000, Wes Baker, Brad Ball, Bill Bradford, and Alonzo Ramírez began the work of planting churches in the Andean city of Cajamarca in northern Peru. In 2001, Baker and Ball relocated to the coastal city of Trujillo as a strategic move toward a more central location in the region. They were followed in 2006 by Bradford. Since then, the Peru Mission team has grown to include several more missionaries and missionary families, as well as many Peruvian ministry leaders and team members. Several more churches have been planted, others have partnered with the mission, and many ministries have sprung up, including mercy ministries, seminary, and university ministry.
We are committed to the historic Christian faith as expressed in the great creeds of the ancient Church: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We also heartily concur with the creeds of the Reformation, most especially the Scots' Confession and the Westminster Confession of Faith.
OUR GIVING POLICY
All gifts are under the control of the board to be used for its exempt purposes. In the unlikely event a project or program is over-funded, or is not able to be carried out, the board will redirect the funds to a similar purpose. Because of this policy, your gifts to support the ministry of specific missionaries are not gifts to or for the individual but to CMS for its ministries. While typically the use of gifts for ministry conducted by a missionary are used in accordance with a donor’s preferences, at times the board may redirect the use of these gifts.
