Organization Description & Goals:
Love Justice International (LJI) is a Christian nonprofit organization compelled by God’s love to fight the world’s greatest injustices. We fight injustice in two primary ways: through our expanding anti-human trafficking work and by caring for orphaned and abandoned children. We currently work in 11 countries throughout Asia and Africa, and are quickly expanding into more nations.
Purpose & Mission Statement:
Why We Serve At Love Justice, our mission is to proclaim the love of Jesus Christ by fighting the world's greatest injustices. We believe in a God of justice—if we truly love God, we must Love Justice. Slavery is not a thing of the past. The human trafficking industry is one of the most devastating and inhumane crimes in the world today, and it is growing. It is estimated that there are 21–45 million slaves in the world today—that’s more than any other time in history. Who We Serve Orphaned and Abandoned Children: There are millions of children in the world who have been abandoned by their parents, forced to leave home because of extreme poverty, or suffered the loss of their parents due to disease or war. Without parental guidance, provision, or love, these children often turn to lives of drugs and crime, spiraling out of control in a cycle of despair that often leads to death from HIV or other diseases. We are passionate and determined to take these lost children who have no hope and place them in an environment where they receive love and learn of God's truth. Rehabilitation of children who have spent significant time on the streets is not easy and requires prayer, innovative thinking, and persistence. Despite the great challenges facing this work, it is critical that these children are not forgotten. Potential Victims of Human Trafficking: The human trafficking industry is one of the greatest injustices in the world today—and it continues to grow at a devastating pace. Women, men, and children are either kidnapped or lured by false offers of marriage or employment, and then they are sold into human trafficking. They are smuggled to another country where they are forced to work as prostitutes, laborers, or similar roles. Our primary strategy for fighting the human trafficking industry is to monitor national borders and transit hubs, intercepting the victims before they are lost to the dark world of modern slavery.
Statement of Faith We believe in the divine incarnation of Jesus Christ, including His miracles, death, and resurrection, as the ultimate source of all good things, including the authority of the scriptures, and the salvation, redemption, and abundant life of those who believe. This leads us to and guide us in our mission. What We Believe We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15–16). We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, John 10:30, John 16:13–15). We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1, 14), in His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:34–35), in His miracles (John 2:11, Acts 10:38), in His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Hebrews 2:9, Hebrews 10:10, 14), in His bodily resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:4, John 2:21–22, Luke 24:6), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9, Ephesians 1:20, Colossians 3:1), and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory (Mark 13:26, Matthew 16:27). We believe each person born into this world possesses a nature that is continually inclined to sin, but can be made a new creation in Christ by the Holy Spirit and thereafter can continuously grow in grace (John 3:16–19, Romans 3:23–24, Romans 5:8–9, Ephesians 2:8–10, Titus 3:5). We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We believe that the Church is the living body of Christ and exists to proclaim the gospel to all persons everywhere and to bring believers to maturity in Christ. We believe that both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment (John 5:24, 28–29). We believe that Christ shall return to judge the world and to rule in righteousness. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).
Be The Kingdom All our work is done through local churches. We strive to live our faith in Jesus Christ and His gospel by following the directives of the New Testament in how we live, work, and relate to one another.
Help Those Who Need It Most Jesus said, "Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me." In response to this teaching, our goal is to find and help those in the world who are most in need..
Do Much With Little We strive to find and implement the strategies that make the greatest possible difference in the lives of as many people as possible with the limited resources we have been entrusted with.
