Matthew 28:19-20 is called the Great Commission. Go and make disciples of ALL NATIONS. It's our desire to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to all peoples, especially the unreached peoples of the world. There are approximately 7.2 billion people in the world. A generous estimate is that one third or 2.4 billion are disciples of Jesus. That leaves approximately 4.8 billion who do not know the one true God and His Son Jesus Christ. Of the almost 5 billion who do not know Jesus, between 2 and 3 billion do not know Jesus because they have never heard of Jesus. They are not rejecting Jesus, they have never heard of Jesus. These numbers are why God is a sending God and He commands us to go.
Our primary partner is with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. We currently have approximately 4500 career missionaries on the field and President David Platt's vision is to have 100,000 followers of Jesus making disciples in all nations. One strategy to mobilize believers is called the Global City Initiative, GCI. Five global cities have been chosen for this new strategy: London, Shanghai, Dubai City, Kuala Lumpur, and a major city in South Asia (for security issues we cannot mention this city).
Foothills Church has partnered with London and the South Asia city as our strategic mission partners. We are sending teams, planting churches, and placing FC Partners in mid-term and long-term placements in both locations.
Besides GCI, there are many short-term, mid-term, and long-term opportunities to go and make disciples of all nations. Click the links to discover more opportunities.
