Our purpose is to reach the nation of Laos with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We will also focus on training and building up new Christian leaders for the next generation. We will set up and plant roots for young Lao Americans with biblical teachings and a foundation built on godliness. We will seek to reform the Lao social, educational, political, government and economic systems with Christian influence before the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Mission: Lao Mission International values commitment, loyalty, and integrity by  putting God first and the center  of our lives. There is not only faith in the Christian life, but action is more important to impact the world.   We will focus , target , collaborate, mobilize local , national, and international churches, businesses, governments, and individual in all areas of need. We will also evangelize, expand and build God's Kingdom through  individuals and churches. To reach the Lao people across the globe with those who have love and a passion for the Lao people.
