At YWAM Destination Paradise’s mission is to train and equip emerging leaders for effectiveness in ministry.

The official YWAM statement of faith provides a great overview of the Biblical foundations of our faith.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God’s son; that people are created in God’s image; that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ; that although all people have sinned and come short of God’s glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ; that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us; that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth; and that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
