As we are part of the Call2all movement, our role is to unify the body of God to finish the Great Commission by completing the 5 Finish Lines. For more in-depth information please visit Call2all.
Unreached People Groups
There are 17,009 people groups in the world. 7,078 of them are still considered unreached. Meaning, 42% of the world’s population, or 3.14 billion people are still unreached in our present time.
There are around 7000 (6860 at last count) known languages in the world. There are still 4,055 languages with no bible translations finished. We can expect active translation projects for every language by the year 2020.
Every single person in the world needs to hear about Jesus in a way they can understand. There is still 1/3 of the world with no access to the gospel. That’s around 2 billion people. The remaining 2/3 may have access, but actually don’t often come into contact with the Good News of Jesus. Most believers come to faith by the time they are 18.
The goal is for every community to have a church presence. We must look at everywhere the church is not and target the “empty” places with fresh, intentional strategies of church multiplication.
Compassion and Justice
Jesus spoke the truth, in love, and showed the truth in his actions. If we are to fully represent Christ today we need to both proclaim his truth and demonstrate his love. It’s time to dismantle the false separation of preaching versus demonstrating the gospel, the old evangelical versus social gospel divide. We are called to be the healing, restoring hand and feet of Jesus today, whilst also proclaiming His message faithfully.
