For 40 years now, Pioneers missionaries have been using innovative and creative means to bring the gospel to every corner of the globe. Founded in 1979 by former businessman Ted Fletcher and his wife, Peggy, Pioneers partners with local churches to make disciples and initiate church-planting movements among unreached peoples. The unreached are cultural and ethnic groups without a self-sustaining witness to the gospel in their own cultures.
The mission of Pioneers is to mobilize teams to glorify God among unreached peoples by initiating church-planting movements in partnership with local churches. But what does that look like? Pioneers’ core values reflect the passions, practices and personality of its members and drive us to plant churches in the world’s most challenging environments.
Our Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, sinless life, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension and exaltation, mediatorial work, and personal, imminent, and visible return in power and glory.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in God the Holy Spirit, who indwells all believers, enabling them to live holy lives and to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ despite opposition from the world, the flesh and Satan.
We believe that the Holy Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, were originally given by God, divinely inspired, without error, infallible, and are entirely trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that Adam and Eve, created in the image of God, were tempted by Satan, the god of this world, and fell; that their sin has passed to all people, who as a result are lost, are unable to save themselves from the wrath of God, and need to be saved.
We believe that salvation is a gift of God to those who repent and personally believe in Jesus Christ; that it is accomplished by God’s grace through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life with God, they who are lost unto the resurrection of eternal condemnation separated from God.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all true believers, the Universal Church, the Body of Christ.
The Great Commission
We believe that Christ commanded the Church to go into all the world and make disciples of all peoples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching those who believe to obey all that Christ commanded.
