Over 4 billion people (2/3 of the world’s 7.2 billion population) have yet to put their hope in Jesus Christ as their personal savior and the answer to a world in crisis. Where there is no hope, there is no motivation for the pursuit of solution. In a world without hope people live for the moment and for themselves, abolishing any vision for a better world. The only antidote to a defeated spirit is one that has been regenerated with authentic faith in the creator. The solution, therefore, to all world crises hinges upon the proclamation of the gospel both through words and action.
The expansion of authentic Christian churches that will both proclaim and demonstrate the gospel of hope through strategic church planting efforts among every tribe and nation on earth is needed.
In order to participate in international church planting the church must also express the heart of Jesus through the outward ministry of the Isaiah 61 commission to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal broken hearts and to set captives free. The local church must become an aggressive discipling agency that not only proclaims biblical truth, but practices it throughout their individual communities. Jesus said to start first in Jerusalem before attempting to go to the remote parts of the earth.
