The vision of Gospelink is to provide as many people as possible the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ and to help them to grow spiritually by empowering national preachers.
There are great spiritual needs throughout the world. It has been estimated that between 15% to 25% of the world’s population is beyond the present proclamation of the gospel message. That means over one billion people still need to hear the gospel for the very first time!
Of the world's 7 billion people, there are over 1.2 billion Muslims; 1.02 billion who claim to be non-religious; over 800 million Hindus, and 775 million Buddhists and followers of other Eastern religions. The Bible proclaims that Jesus is The Way to eternal life and that there is no other name whereby mankind can be saved. By their own profession, the followers of these other religions do not recognize Jesus as The Way. They do not recognize Him as the Son of God. As such, they cannot possess the salvation promised in the Word of God.
After His resurrection, in His last words before His ascension, Jesus gave one final mandate to His followers (Acts 1:8). They were told to take the Gospel message to the ends of the earth.
But, how can we, as individual Christians, accomplish this objective? One way it can be accomplished is through praying, giving, and helping national preachers who are working to reach their own people with the Gospel.
There are thousands of national preachers spread across the globe who are doing their best to advance the Gospel among their people, many in areas closed to the traditional Western missionary. Sadly, most of these preachers have insufficient funds in order to minister full-time and few resources for effective outreach and training. Consider the words of the Apostle Paul in Romans 10:14-15, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?” Preachers must be sent forth with the Gospel message!
It is our belief that the advancement of the Gospel globally can be best accomplished by assisting national preachers who are actively involved in church planting and discipleship. Through prayer and financial assistance, national preachers are empowered, their evangelistic outreach is enhanced, and their church planting efforts are accelerated. Gospelink is partnering with nearly 1,200 national preachers in twelve nations in Africa, Asia, and Eurasia. In the years to come, it is our desire to assist thousands of national preachers and to expand into new areas of the world.
We are looking forward to the future! We feel that the Lord has given us a vision and a method to accomplish it. Our prayer is that you will join us and be a part of Gospelink’s vision.
