Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.

2 Corinthians 5:17-20

What We Proclaim

The Gospel

Gospel means “Good News.” The gospel is the Good News of a loving God’s desire for rebellious people to be reconciled to Him. It includes the amazing action that He has taken, and is carrying out now, to accomplish that reconciliation through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Why is the gospel such Good News?
We are all accountable to God, the One who created us. We sin against God because we all have disobeyed His will for our lives. That sin separates us from God, now and forever.

However, because of His amazing love for us, God has acted on our behalf, through Jesus Christ, to save us and bring us back into His family.
We are saved and reconciled to God when we receive His offer of salvation by turning from our sin and confessing our faith in Jesus’ death on our behalf and His glorious resurrection. This gift of salvation, through Christ, must be accepted; it cannot be earned.

Where We Proclaim It

The 10/40 Window is the rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East and Asia approximately between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude.
Approximately 5.27 billion individuals residing in 8,886 distinct people groups are in the 10/40 Window.  6,190 (69.7%) of these people groups are considered unengaged and unreached and have a population of 3.26 billion. This means approximately 62% of the individuals in the 10/40 Window live in an unreached people group.

We focus on the 10/40 Window for several important reasons: first, the historical and biblical significance of these regions; second, the majority of the the least evangelized countries are here; third, most of the largest unreached people groups and cities are here; and fourth, the preponderance of the poor and needy live here.

Manifesto for the Unreached

We stand in agreement and affirm the following: 

1. Unengaged and Unreached People – We refuse to stand idly by as people enter eternity without Christ when we can share the good news that transforms them through any means possible.  (Acts 5:40-42)

2. The Weak and Infirm – We refuse to watch people for whom Christ died suffer in pain and poverty when we can help restore them in His name. (1 John 3: 17-18)
3. The Resistant – We refuse to fear the darkness that entraps people when common sense says, “protect yourself.” We will put on the armor of God and pray fervently for the sake of the unreached. (Ephesians 6: 10-20)
4. Partnership – We will release what God has given us to empower others to multiply God’s kingdom through the gifts He has given them. (Romans 12 :4-5)
5. Technology – We will leverage, to the best of our ability, God’s gift of technology to reveal His eternal wisdom to those who have never heard the name of Jesus. (Habakkuk 2: 2-3, 2 Timothy 4:2)
6. Resources – We will employ every resource, talent and ounce of energy God gives us to shine the light of His grace into the darkest recesses of the planet. (Matthew 25: 14-30)
7. Declaration – We will shout from every peak, pinnacle and rooftop that the only hope for this dying world is a relationship with Jesus Christ. (Psalm 96: 2-5, Acts 4:12)

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Romans 10:14-15
