    • What We Believe Enter description here.
      The Good Samaritans uses the following to communicate its essential Christian beliefs:

      1. We are confident that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God.

      2. We acknowledge the Creator-God as our heavenly Father, infinitely perfect, and intimately acquainted with all our ways.

      3. We claim Jesus Christ as Lord -- the very God who came in human flesh -- the object of our worship and the subject of our praise.

      4. We recognize the Holy Spirit as the third member of the Godhead, incessantly at work convicting, convincing, and comforting.

      5. We believe that Adam's fall into sin left humanity without the hope of heaven apart from a new birth, made possible by the Savior's death and bodily resurrection.

      6. We believe the offer of salvation is God's love-gift to all. Those who accept it by faith, apart from works, become new creatures in Christ.

      7. We believe that anyone who trusts in Christ by faith, is a new creation in Him -- clothed in His righteousness and fully loved and accepted by God.

      8. We believe that God expects our lives to reflect that we belong to Him and that we are pursuing a holy life.

      9. We believe that Satan, under the sovereign permission of God, tries to destroy the faith of believers and that drawing near to God is the only way to resist him.

      10. We believe that as new creations in Christ we will continue to wrestle with our sin nature. We will, however, continue to grow in grace and become more like Jesus. Ultimate perfection and freedom from sin, however, will only come when we finally stand in the presence of the Lord.

      11. We believe that, as believers in Jesus Christ, we are members of His universal church and that the local church is the place God has designed for His people to worship Him, observe the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Table, and love other Christians.

      12. We believe that, having embraced Jesus Christ by faith, we are to make Him known to non-Christians in our sphere of influence.

      13. We anticipate our Lord's promised return in power and glory.

      14. We are convinced that all who have died will be brought back from beyond-believers to everlasting communion with God and unbelievers to everlasting separation from God.

    Education and Literacy: Missions through Education

    Education equips children to look towards a better adult life. It opens their world to dreams and possibilities. It allows them to access knowledge for life through books and technology that is now easily available. The aim and focus of The Good Samaritan Schools in India is provision of quality education to tribal communities and marginalized communities and children at risk, that have a high level of illiteracy, high drop-out rates and low educational achievement. The years spent with them also bring God given opportunities to point them to Him and the life giving message of Salvation in Christ. Click Here for more Details.

    Translation: Bible in Heart Language

    India is land of teeming millions, rich diversity of culture and with identity seeped by regions, opportunities and most importantly and heart language and dialects. There are yet thousands who are still waiting for their first copy of God’s Word in their own language. You can gift scriptures verse-by verse. Our goal is to provide scriptures to the least reached peoples. To translate, to publish and to see lives nurtured by God's Word.

    SPAD: Gifting Scriptures In Their Mother Tongue

    Many people in rural and tribal areas of our world are oral learners. It means they may not have a script for their language or dialect and they most likely never learned how to read and write.
    The Good Samaritans International is giving to them a Solar Powered Audio Device or simply a SPAD (pronounced S-PAD) with the Bible recorded in it in their language. S-PAD gives them quick, easy, and mobile access to God's word. With scriptures and scriptural teaching available to them, tribal groups are now able to search and examine God's Word, just like the Bereans in the book of Acts, in obedience and with faith. Give a gift of one or more, Solar Powered Audio Device!
