Heaven's Family's mission is simple. We are called to advance the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ on earth. We accomplish this by strategically linking kingdom needs and opportunities to resources provided by those who love Jesus. Through these strategic partnerships, Heaven's Family invests in (1) reaching the unreached with the gospel, (2) discipling Christ's followers, and (3) serving the suffering-particularly those whom Jesus refers to as the "least of these" (see Matt 25:31-46, 28:19-20). In everything we do, the gospel of Jesus Christ is at the core. Jesus said that the world would know we are His disciples by our love, and He prayed that we would be one so that the world would believe (see John 13:34-35; 17:21).
