Our Statement of Faith

We believe in one God, creator, and sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, redemptive death, bodily resurrection, present exaltation at God's right hand, and the blessed hope of His personal return.

We believe in the Deity and Personality of the Holy Spirit, who works in all people to bring them salvation through Christ and who dwells in believers, equipping them for lives of holiness and fruitful service.

We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired, and authoritative written Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe that all have sinned and therefore are guilty before God and are under his condemnation.

We believe that through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ, God in love provided an atonement for sin, so that, through repentance and saving faith in Christ, man is delivered from the judgment of God and is born again into life eternal.

We believe that the Church is composed of all true believers and that the mission of the Church, with Christ as its Head, is to communicate the Gospel of Christ to all the World.

We believe in the resurrection of the body, the eternal punishment of unbelievers and the everlasting blessedness of believers in the presence of Christ.

Our Formation

There are numerous fingerprints that make Latin America Mission what it is today. Humbly in 1925, Toronto native Rev. William Thompson and his wife Pearl May were commissioned to go to Costa Rica as missionaries. It wasn’t long before many others followed suit: Dr. Marie Cameron, Don and Jean Longworth, Margaret Acheson, Nancy Koop, Eve Fowler, Hugh and Olive Worsfold, Gloria Amritt, Vicki Ricketts, Jim and Pat McInnes, and Esther Rowe.

In 1961, Latin America Mission Canada (LAM Canada) was incorporated, catalyzing continued growth. What started as a small sending base for a few evangelists is now a national organization devoted to equipping and empowering nearly 40 missionaries in 7 countries throughout Latin America. Their work to build holistic biblical partnerships are vital to the communities they serve.

We are blessed to celebrate more than 50 years of ministry and God’s provision.  Please join us for many more years to come.
