A message from Brandon and Darnelle (founders of ILS):
Our lives were radically changed by the message of Jesus in the early 70’s. We were married in 1974 and have two grown children, Amber & Analise. We live in Burleson, Texas just south of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. God gave us a wonderful opportunity to travel overseas in 1982 for ministry. He ignited a fire in our hearts in those early years that has continued to burn unquenched to see His kingdom realized in the world today. In 2003 we began International Living Streams to facilitate the call of God on our lives. There’s an African proverb that fits so well our hearts, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. Our hope and prayer is to reach many and to go far for the Kingdom of God, we invite you to “go together” with us.
ILS is made up of people whose lives have been touched and transformed by the love and power of Jesus. We are dedicated to proclaiming the gospel of Christ by partnering together with God’s people to train and disciple indigenous leaders to reach their own people with the life changing Word of God. We demonstrate the love of Jesus through the rescue and care of orphaned and abandoned children and by uplifting oppressed women, abused and devalued by their culture. We promote unity in areas torn by strife, hatred and tribalism.
STATEMENT OF FAITH: We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. In one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. He died for our sins and all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in right relationship with God. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His Personal return in power and glory. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer. We believe in the Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, which is God’s family, Christ’s Body and the Holy Spirit’s habitation among men. We believe that we should receive as brethren all who sincerely embrace Christ as Lord.
