We have become full time missionaries in order that the precious message of Salvation, which was shared with us would be passed on to others. We believe this is the primary purpose for our lives.

He says unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:15

We are Score International missionaries located in San Jose, Costa Rica. We are involved in ministries through Score International where we work with groups that come from the States who have a desire to serve the spiritual and physical needs of the people of Costa Rica.

We also minister in a community that is very dear to our hearts called Los Guido. Los Guido has 41,000 people living in this very poor community of which approximately 81 % are illegal emigrants from Nicaragua. With very few options, they live in very poor conditions and face problems with drugs, alcohol and other abuses. Each Saturday we have a Bible study for the youth which enables us to minister to them and allow us to follow up with the growth of their Christian faith, and on every other Sunday we study the Bible together.

Many of these teenagers attend camps where we also serve as counselors explaining the message of salvation.

God has given us this desire to work with children and youth as we believe they are going to be our next generation of Christians. Our prayers are that God will mature them into men and women who love and serve God and will continue spreading the good news of Christ to their children’s generation.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired by God. They are without error in the original writings, and they are the supreme and final authority for our faith and life.

We believe in one God, Creator, and Sustainer of the universe, who is eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ; His virgin birth; sinless life; His death to pay the penalty for everyone’s sins, His bodily resurrection; His exaltation to God’s right hand; and His personal, imminent, pretribulational and premillennial return.

We believe that all who by faith receive Jesus Christ are then born again of the Holy Spirit, therefore children of God and eternally saved, and that the Holy Spirit dwells within every believer to enlighten, guide, and enable the believer in life, testimony, and service. We believe that God answers the prayers of His people and meets their needs according to His purpose.
