Training Believers to Transform the Muslim World Through Jesus Christ

Women Sharing.jpg

The Muslim world is experiencing a spiritual revolution not seen since the rise of Islam in the seventh century. This time, the revolution is a widespread rejection of Islam and a search for the true God.

For example, in Afghanistan, registered as number two on the Open Doors list of countries where persecution of Christians is most extreme, college students are angry with Islam for what it has done to their country. They want positive change and are considering other ideas, including Christianity. In numerous cities of the country, student groups are being established for dialogue.

Such truth-seeking groups provide excellent entry opportunities for GCM disciple makers to begin conversations with Muslims who are spiritually open and start them on the journey of discovering God.

Not only in Afghanistan, but throughout the Muslim world, God is opening hearts to receive His truth. Our GCM disciple makers report an increase of dreams, visions and miracles from God being experienced by the people they encounter. As Maryam, a GCM disciple maker working in a restricted Muslim country, reports:

“We see miracles every day and experience His hand in our lives. When we find people to talk to about Him, He is there. I know that God is doing everything, and I’m not doing anything. I’m just a person delivering the message. It is awesome, and we have so much joy in experiencing God every day!”

Beyond leading Muslims to Christ, GCM’s goal is to train new believers to be effective messengers of the Gospel, empowered to show other Muslims the truth and form new house churches. In a ripple effect, our goal is for these churches to replicate themselves until all Muslims throughout the world have had the opportunity to learn about Jesus and be transformed by Him!

Through the support and prayers of friends like you, GCM is training Muslim background believers (MBB’s) globally to be effective messengers of the Gospel, just like Maryam. In 2018 alone, more than 200 Christian leaders from restricted Muslim countries and other countries with significant Muslim populations were trained in the Disciple-Making Movement strategy.

Along with you, we look forward to how the Holy Spirit will lead and use these dedicated believers to multiply the message of forgiveness, freedom, and abundant life through Jesus Christ among Muslims in even the most resistant strongholds of the enemy.

Thank you again for your faithful partnership in this Kingdom effort—until every Muslim has heard!

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
