We believe that God’s heart, as revealed through the Bible, has always been for the nations and that people everywhere would call on Him for salvation through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 12:1-3, Psalm 67, John 3:16, Matthew 28:19, Acts 1:8 - click here for a list of additional verses).
As God’s heart is for all the nations, we as a local church need to have a heart for all the nations as well. Therefore, we want to strategically focus on being a sending church who invests in indigenous leaders who are establishing local church movements in nations where there is not a healthy, multiplying, indigenous church. We also want to see the Bible translated into the languages of every people group and to reach the unreached people groups of the world with the gospel.
Below you will be able to hear one of our sent missionaries share about God's work among the nations. You can also read the transcript here.
