— IDN Mission Statement —
To take the Christian gospel message to all of India
IDN assists Indian Christians in training and equipping adults and young people to BE disciples and to MAKE disciples. Children are taught biblical principles so they may become the next generation of disciples and disciple makers. The love of God is demonstrated through active and ongoing projects providing the basic necessities of life, including safe drinking water and education. Support is provided for schools, orphanages and rescue efforts for abandoned girls, established and operated by faithful Indian Christians. Monetary resources for this effort comes from Indian and American individuals, churches and other organizations who see the vision and share the passion for reaching over one billion souls in India.
India has a current population of over 1.2 billion souls, second in the world only to China and quickly becoming the most populated country on earth. This staggering number is a clear indication of the need to share God’s love with others.
“…and make disciples baptizing them…”
IDN’s goal is to support, train and encourage the people of India to carry the saving message of the cross throughout their country… and beyond. IDN helps adults and young people BE disciples and then to MAKE disciples.
We partner with other ministries to provide the tools and encouragement for Indian Christians to carry out God’s mission in their own country and surrounding regions. We offer ourselves and our resources to encourage, facilitate and accelerate the work of the Indian mission.
What We Do
In our target country of India, IDN provides our Indian brethren with the following types of assistance:
- Access to training materials and seminars
– Discovery Bible Study (DBS)

The Next Chapter
IDN recently partnered with Missions Resource Network (MRN) to establish a Global Launch Site (GLS) in India. The churches in Bangalore have accepted the task of preparing missionaries to go into all of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal with the gospel of Christ. These native missionaries are trained in the knowledge of the Bible and exhibit the love of Christ for others. They will also confidently face persecution and possible death in the name of Jesus. A waiting list of applicants indicates that many Indian Christians are serious about their faith and willing to take the good news to their lost neighbors, even under life threatening circumstances.
