My passion is that people in every nation, tribe and tongue may hear (in their own heart language) the Good News. My heart desires for them to know of God’s great love, and receive His shalom. While much has been done, there is still much to do.
Over a third of the world or an astonishing 3.2 billion people are unreached with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They have little access to the Gospel, face persecution, and in many cases have never heard the name of Jesus.
Many are marginalised, oppressed rural communities that are denied access to information, education and other services. They are also often geographically hard to reach. Yet one of the biggest reasons is that only 1% of mission funds throughout the world are channelled towards reaching the unreached.
But the mission of God is still to be completed. That is why we say, “Let them Hear” and “Until all are Reached”.
The barriers are many, but God’s enabling is greater. It immensely encourages me that Christ’s Great Commission, to all of us, is backed by all authority in heaven and on earth and His presence.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
With your support, FEBC is uniquely penetrating the barriers to the Great Commission. Programs led and spoken by locals across the world broadcast the Gospel in multiple languages in their own country (145 languages worldwide). These reach the different ethnic groups, the imprisoned, refugees, and isolated; no matter how small in size they are. Across Southeast Asia, hope is broadcasted in over 40 languages. In Mali, there are seven languages. Multiple language broadcasts are also in China. Where the Good News is restricted and believers persecuted, Jesus’ love still reaches hearts in unexpected ways through FEBC’s broadcasts.
I pray the stories we are sharing will stir your passion to share, to pray, to give, to partner – so that those yet to know Jesus may find the source of true life; life in all its fullness.
