To 5.1 million American Indians the Holy Spirit has commissioned us to take the Name of Jesus and make it great. We will evangelize First Americans, the hidden natives of the USA, training and sending them to win others to the Lord Jesus Christ.
"For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries" (1 Corinthians 16:9). With eyes focused steadfastly upon the open door, and One who told us He is the door, we ignore all adversaries. Leaving them in God's hands, we proceed to obey His command.
With eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, we are successfully taking His Name to more than 100 tribes. With requests for a minister to come and a church to be built reaching the Indian Missions office almost daily, we proceed. Continuous prayer ascends for laborers and for finances to carry out the God-given command.
Giving all the glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, we are rejoicing daily for reports of Indian souls accepting Him as their Savior. The School of Christ teaches and trains workers, and He keeps right on building His church, just like He said He would do. It is truly wonderful to be included in His plan!

The Indian Missions Department is actively involved in constructing church facilities in Native American communities.
Each year, several major construction projects are scheduled, and the work is done with volunteer skilled builders. These volunteers have been immensely valuable in establishing churches to teach God's Word and train Natives to evangelize their own.
Numerous facilities, consisting of church sanctuaries and Christian Education departments, exist today because dedicated Christians with vision to win First Americans to Christ have contributed finances and labor.
