Vision Statement

Developing Christian leaders for Africa.

Core Values

Love Botswana exhibits compassion through pioneering, innovative, and inspiring programs with an attitude of faithfulness.

Doctrinal Statement

The Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. Salvation has been provided and is available for all people through Jesus Christ. Through His sacrifice on the cross, we can die to our sinful nature and be born again to a new life of purity and power. Water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. This baptism provides power to live a sanctified and holy life and to be effective in service to God. As children of God, we are overcomers and conquerors and have authority over the devil and his works.

What We Do

Love Botswana is comprised of many departments coming together to accomplish the goal of developing Christian leaders for Africa.  Its efforts focus on educational programs, HIV/AIDS care and prevention programs, social outreach, and church development.

All Nations Village Church

The church seeks to train and equip the community to become a strong, victorious people for God through practical teaching of the Bible.  Pioneered in 1995 with only a handful of people, All Nations Village Church, Maun has grown to a vibrant, thriving congregation of people from over 15 nations.

Church Development

Evangelism and outreach to remote areas are at the heart of All Nations Village Church.  The church operates Love Botswana Bible Institute, a Bible training school which prepares and equips Christian leaders for ministry.   Currently, All Nations Village Church has branch churches in the Northwest District of Botswana and Namibia, with pastors trained through Love Botswana Bible Institute.  The church is also involved in community evangelism as well as ministry in local prisons and through national radio broadcasts.
