Mission Statement

It is our passionate desire to be obedient to God in his leading and calling for our life. We believe Zambia is where He wants us to be. The bondage of sin has had a dire effect upon the Zambian people. Poverty, disease, hopelessness, and a breakdown of the family has been the result. We believe God desires to manifest His glory in Zambia through the planting of indigenous, self-supporting, self-governing, self-propagating churches as we see modeled in Acts 14:21-23

And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.

We feel God is directing us to begin our ministry in the capital city of Lusaka and to expand it in the future to the rural areas. Lusaka has a population of approx. 1.7 million. Many Zambians from all parts of the country are making their way from the bush into the cities looking for work. We would love to see God allow us to plant several churches in this city, where from which we may see young men who God has called to the ministry carry the gospel back to their home villages and plant churches. Zambians reaching Zambians is the key. We can not reach every village in Zambia by ourselves, but with God's help in starting churches through-out the country whose heartbeat is reproducing themselves, every village in Zambia may one day have a Bible believing church. Would you join us in bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Zambian people?
