Pioneering – Reaching the Unreached
Where the church does not exist we work to see a multiplying church movement established. We do this with other Christians wherever possible. We use whatever methods that are both effective and glorifying to God. We preserve in sharing until His church is established. Where there are restrictions or barriers to open mission work, we serve through other approaches while continuing our goal to establish Christ’s church there.
Where the church is small and Christians are few, we work to see that place, society or people saturated with the gospel and churches established in every community. We aim to establish churches that are faithful to the Scriptures, are a genuine expression of local culture, are reaching out to their own people and other peoples, and are able to care for themselves while taking their place as part of the worldwide body of Christ. We respect, serve with and partner local churches and Christians where we work. Where there is already an established pattern of church order and government, we do not interfere with it.
Perfecting and Discipling
We contribute to the growth and maturity of the body of Christ through publishing, student work and other ministries of discipling and training. Where the church is weak, we seek to strengthen it through teaching and encouragement. Where the church has lost its zeal, we seek to see it renewed. As an expression of our holistic concern to share the whole gospel with the whole person, we engage in ministries to the needy, always relating these ministries to the church.
Mobilising East Asians
We mobilise resources worldwide to advance and sustain the evangelisation of East Asia. We present the needs of East Asia to churches and individuals to stimulate prayer, challenge Christians to service, and encourage sacrificial giving. We see prayer as essential to the work. We mobilize and inform a worldwide group of praying supporters.
Networking & Partnering
As an international team of men and women from around the world, we value diversity and partnership. We partner churches in sending countries to mobilize, develop, and support members for effective service. We network and partner with other mission organizations that share our goals.
