Needed now: Gospel driven people

posted 10 Oct 2014, 02:25 by FMBC Admin
Being involved in the training of a new generation of Christian workers is exciting. Watching students learn, grow and being moulded into the likeness of Christ is a real privilege and also a vitally important work.

According to Operation World 60 million people on these islands are without God and without hope. If ever we needed a new generation of people like Philip the evangelist in Acts 8 it is now. Philip was driven from his home in Jerusalem because of persecution, but behind the dark clouds of providence God was at work. As Philip travelled into Samaria he took the gospel with him and, being the kind of person that he was, he was unable to keep it to himself. God used him to see scores of people transformed by His grace.

For a Jew to reach out to the Samaritans was unthinkable. For someone to reach out with the message of God’s salvation was simply ground breaking. Philip was prepared to cross borders and step over boundaries to see people changed by the gospel. There are places all around these islands where there is nothing by way of gospel witness. In other locations there may be small and struggling churches. We believe what is needed is a new generation of people who can handle the word of God accurately and communicate it effectively – who are ‘gospel-driven people’ at heart. People who want to introduce their community to Jesus. We are involved in preparing this new generation of gospel-driven workers and it is exciting.  Please pray for us.

Thank you for all your support in the past. We could not do what we do without your help.
