In 2007, Mercy Ministries International (now Mercy Multiplied International) adopted a governance model that brought a new level of program consistency, oversight, and accountability, and positioned Mercy to expand its reach and increase its effectiveness throughout the world. Mercy Multiplied is governed by this model in the United States, as are its affiliates in the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand.
An executive director and board of directors oversee operations in each country, and the board of Mercy Multiplied International oversees each country’s board of directors.

Statement of Faith
God the Father
He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. He is all powerful, all knowing, omnipresent, omnipotent, and sovereign. (Jeremiah 10:12; Psalm 139: 7-10; Psalm 147:5; Proverbs 15:3; Romans 1:20)
God the Son
Jesus is the eternal Son of God. We believe He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified, willingly shedding His blood for the redemption of mankind and forgiveness of sins to all who receive the sacrifice. He was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day He rose from the dead with a glorified body, appeared to His disciples, ascended to heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, bringing reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to complete His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 3:17; Acts 1:8-11; Romans 8:31-34; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-6; Titus 2:11-14)
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God (the Comforter, the Intercessor, the Strengthener, the Standby, the Counselor). He illuminates men to understand truth, and He draws men to the Father. He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service. (John 16:7-8; 1 Corinthians 6:19; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 5:16-17; Romans 8:5-13)
This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, the infallible, written Word of God, is the sole basis and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Mercy Multiplied’s faith, practice, policy, and discipline, our board of directors is the final interpretive authority on the meaning and application of the Statement of Faith for Mercy Multiplied.
