Reaching Unreached People Groups
EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR
“He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation'.” Mark 16:15
2,500 people groups are still waiting to hear the gospel in their heart language. From the beginning, our vision has been to take the gospel to these people groups. The focus and vision of our founders was razor sharp and far-reaching. It was a vision that spoke of God’s heart for the world. Truly this is a vision that demands our passion and it remains unchanged!
Teaching Chronologically Through the Bible
THE WHOLE BIBLE IS THE STORY OF REDEMPTION
“Then beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He interpreted for them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.” Luke 24:27
We believe that the gospel of grace is accurately understood in light of the whole story of the Bible. The good news of the gospel begins to unfold on the first page of Scripture, revealing the most incredible love story of all time! Perfect Creator, beautiful creation, tempter, sin, fallen man, brokenness, pain, hope, love, provision, restoration…Jesus.
Our chronological Bible teaching method systematically tells the story of the Bible so that the truths of the Old Testament provide the foundation for understanding and responding to the truth of the gospel. The Bible is powerfully changing lives as the unfolding story of God’s provision of salvation for all the ethnos continues to be told!
Translating God's Word
THE WORD OF GOD IS THE CHURCH’S FRAMEWORK
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
God has given His inspired Word to reveal Himself to the lost world, and provide His children with instruction, encouragement, reproof, and wisdom for life. But what about those who don’t have it?
It’s difficult to believe that there are still hundreds of languages waiting for God’s Word to be translated into their own tongue. Our goal is to put the word of God into the hands of the people groups with whom we work! Our missionaries are equipped to not only learn an unwritten language, but to oversee the translation work and literacy training necessary so that all the ethnos can one day hear God speaking to them through His Word.
Training Aboriginal Church Leaders
OUR CO-WORKERS COME FROM EVERY PEOPLE GROUP
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20
With billions of people still waiting to hear the gospel, the task is bigger than just us. We rejoice that God is calling out workers from the ethnos to go. These national missionaries are already committed to minister, and we continue to equip and work alongside them.
Church planting requires the church, and our role in mobilizing, equipping, and coordinating missionaries extends beyond our own culture. From all around to the world, God is calling out workers to be a part of reaching the ethnos!
Establishing Thriving Churches
THE GOAL IS MATURING BODIES OF GROWING BELIEVERS
“So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily.” Acts 16:5
It’s not an accident that God commands all believers to function within a church body. He has put us into the universal body of Christ, and designed us to serve and grow best within the community of the local church body. Paul and his fellow labourers implemented Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations” by establishing churches. It makes sense — disciples and thriving churches go hand-in-hand.
Following the pattern seen in Acts as God’s people carried out the Great Commission, we seek to establish mature churches that can take their rightful place as agents of change in their own communities and partners in the Great Commission.
