Christian HealthCare Ministries
Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) is a nonprofit, voluntary cost-sharing ministry through which participating Christians meet each other's medical bills. CHM is based on Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4. In the last 20 years, CHM members have shared more than $500 million in medical bills. The ministry is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Christian Healthcare Ministries is not a health insurance company. Rather, we are a group of thousands of Christians across the United States and around the world who share each other's burdens in the area of health care costs. We also pray for and encourage one another.
Gideons International
The Gideons International is an interdenominational association of Christian business and professional men who are members of Protestant/evangelical churches. Our members are dedicated to saving the lost through personal witnessing and the distribution of God's Word in more than 190 countries around the world. The majority of Gideons live and serve in their local communities, making us very effective and efficient because . . . They know the local language and customs. They know where the hotels, schools, prisons, hospitals and other locations where Bibles and New Testaments need to be distributed are located. Sometimes, we're able to establish local groups of Gideons in countries where traditional missionaries aren't allowed to go.
Samaritains Purse
Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God's love through His Son, Jesus Christ.
