“You can’t imagine the joy, the gladness that comes with building churches in communities that will never be able to do it. Every church building is a miracle to the people.” Rev. Pastor Kenneth Wafula, Uganda
Churches Speak Truth
Through local churches, people learn the truth of God’s Word and how to apply it to their lives. The church testifies to God’s presence and provision in the community. New Christians are molded into strong disciples of the faith, who then demonstrate their zeal through church planting.
Churches Love Others
They know the language, culture and needs of their community. They use the gifts and tools God has given them to minister to the people around them. This love draws people toward a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Churches Build Faith
The Church is Christ’s body, through which He speaks and acts (Eph. 1:23). Thus, faith lives and thrives best in community with other Christians. As new believers grow strong in community and in their knowledge of Jesus, they engage in church planting—spreading their faith to other villages.
Churches Need Help
In some places, a church building is the only way for Christians to worship legally and safely. Few seminaries exist to train new pastors. And because 60% of the world’s people learn orally, new Christians need easy-to-understand Bible study tools in an audio format. Once churches are equipped with the resources they need, they are empowered for church planting in unreached areas.
