Mission • Vision • Values
Amazima is a ministry made up of many different people, working together for a shared purpose.
“To live out the love of Jesus by educating and empowering the people of Uganda and the communities we serve.”
“That every person we serve would know Christ and make Him known, resulting in transformed lives, restored relationships, and changed communities.”
Amazima's Core Values
We have worked to articulate core values that drive our individual and organizational posture. These six stated values serve as guides to remind us what we are about, what is important to us, and what we want to strive for in the future.
Our Statement of Faith
We adhere to the National Association of Evangelicals Statement of Faith, which abides by the following statements:
WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
WE BELIEVE that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Amazima Ministries International was founded by Katie Davis Majors in 2008. The organization, based out of Brentwood, Tennessee, educates, empowers and encourages the orphaned, poor and vulnerable in the country of Uganda. The name chosen for this ministry represented what Katie longed to see take root in the lives of everyone who came in contact with the ministry. In Luganda, the local language, Amazima (Ah-mah-zeemah) means “truth.” Amazima Ministries desires to reveal the truth of God’s unconditional love through Jesus Christ to the people of Uganda.
We show our love for God by obeying His command to care for the least of His people and make disciples of all nations. Every outreach of Amazima Ministries, whether The Amazima School, education scholarship, medical, farming, beading or community outreach, is accompanied by Biblical teaching and spiritual encouragement. We know that nourishing the physical needs is not the ultimate goal. We long to see people fed spiritually and restored into a right relationship with God.
