All God’s Children International is an orphan care ministry answering God’s call to provide the love and care that every child deserves.
Our vision is to empower local leaders to intervene for the 8 million children currently living in institutions and create more pathways to family and independence.
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
All God’s Children International believes…
…the Bible is the sole, inerrant and infallible Word of God, verbally inspired by Him, and is the only and final authority for the Christian faith and life
…that there is one triune God, as revealed in the Bible, eternally existent in the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are one in essence, but distinct in person and function:
…God the Father is the first person of the Trinity. As infinite Spirit, He is the source, support, and end of all things. He is the designer of creation, speaker of revelation, the author of redemption, and the sovereign of history.
…Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity. In His incarnation, He was fully God and fully man. By His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, and His bodily resurrection, He became the physical manifestation of the Godhead and Savior to mankind.
…the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is the agent of conviction, salvation, indwelling, baptism, sanctification, and illumination of all who are born into God’s family through Jesus Christ.
…that any man can receive the free gift of salvation and eternal life through the saving power of the Holy Spirit, by repentance of sin and by placing personal faith in the person and finished work of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
…in the resurrection of both saved and unsaved people. The saved are resurrected into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and the unsaved are resurrected into eternal separation.
…in the spiritual unity of believers through the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit which brings all believers into union with Jesus Christ and with His body, the church.
…that the scriptural practices of the church, given by the Lord, are Baptism and Communion.
…that God has ordained the local church for the perpetuation of His truth and work in the world.
WE PUT CHILDREN FIRST
AGCI is so much more than an adoption agency. We work with children and families around the world to help keep children within families and out of institutions. In instances when that isn’t possible, we partner with institutions to train caregivers and elevate care so that every child is known and loved. Additionally, through our strong relationships with government officials around the world, we’re working to change the systems that keep children in institutions and out of loving families.
For the millions of children who wait for forever families, AGCI is also committed to being an advocate. We advocate for waiting children (children or sibling groups who due to their age or special needs are sometimes more challenging to place) to find their forever families. We believe that every child deserves to know the love of a forever family and are passionate about being a voice for these often forgotten children.

OVER 25 YEARS OF SERVICE
Our journey began with one family and has since grown to include 1,000s of adoptive families. Over the past 25 years, AGCI has united over 3,172 children from 23 countries with their forever families. Throughout our decades of service, we have always remained committed to finding families for children, not children for families. Our commitment to ethical adoption practices means we only work in countries which adhere to the Hague Convention and that have a clear process for declaring children orphans and in need of an adoptive family. To learn more about AGCI’s commitment to ethical adoptions, read The Good No.
Our experienced team is also committed to walking every step of this challenging, joyful, and sometimes frustrating journey with you. When you choose AGCI, you are also choosing a group of compassionate individuals to be your advocates throughout the process. Our team is committed to clear, timely communication so you can always know the status of your adoption and any updates as soon as they occur.
