Our ministry philosophy is found in Matt 28:18-20 and 2 Timothy 2:2. The pattern we want to follow is in the Great Commission – to Teach, Baptize, and Teach some more.
Teach – We believe, especially in a country like Indonesia, that a person must properly understand the gospel to believe the gospel.
Baptize – We believe that every person should then be baptized by immersion and become active in the church.
Teach – Then we want to see every Christian grow in maturity “to observe all things” and become disciples of the Lord Jesus.
Plant Churches – God has ordained to use the church and our desire is to see a strong, self-supporting, self-governing, self-propagating, Bible-based churches started in Indonesia.
That will be our focus – to start churches, evangelize the lost, and train them to do the same. This is not a strategy, it is God’s prescription.
Train Leaders – The priority for our ministry will be to teach and train faithful men who will be able to teach others also. (2 Tim 2:2). The fundamental problem in Indonesia is the lack of strong, doctrinally sound, evangelizing churches.
We want the Indonesian people to hear and believe the gospel, find their joy and purpose in Him, and be used to reach others.
Men – We intend on following the pattern of the Lord Jesus who made it his ministry to train men that would be capable to carry on the ministry when he was gone.
Media – In a country like Indonesia, the name of Jesus is largely unknown by the masses, so we intend on using mass-media to extend the reach of our ministry as far as possible to places that we could never reach without it.
Materials – We want to produce sound Biblical material in the Indonesian language that can be distributed and reproduced to teach the gospel beyond what we can do alone. We plan on utilizing every tool available to publish His name among those who do not know Him. This will involve translation of current materials, development of new material, and the printing and distribution.
