Jesus gave each of us an assignment. It’s ABOUT FINISHING THE TASK.
In some of his last words on Earth, Jesus set before his followers a task and a promise:
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt. 28:19-20 (NIV)
This assignment has been the call of every follower of Christ ever since. Nearly two thousand years have passed since this Great Commission – and yet there are still people and places in nations across the globe who have never once had the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus. We can change that. Each believer has a role to play in the completion of the Great Commission. Together, we can work towards a world in which no one is left without an opportunity to know Jesus.
Finishing the Task is calling the global church to partner together to run faster and farther towards the following shared goals by AD 2033, the 2000th anniversary of the Great Commission:
ACCELERATING TOWARDS SHARED GOALS FOR AD 2033
a Bible translation for all languages
There are approximately 2,002 languages that have no Bible translation, and 3,425 more where only portions of Scripture have been made accessible. Our goal is to see the start of Bible translation in each language by 2025, and the entire Bible translated into every language by 2033.
a strategy to share the Good News with every person
While hard to imagine for some, there are those who will go their entire lives without ever having had the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus. Technological advances and increased collaboration bring within reach a goal of developing strategies in which individuals across the globe can have access to a life changing presentation of the Good News like never before.
a church for every 1000 people worldwide
Growing, reproducing disciples are made within the body of Christ – the local church. Church planting movements are working together in accelerated ways towards the shared goal of seeing a church created for every 1000 people worldwide. Towards this goal, we aim to see a church planting movement engagement in every people group and every place by Dec 31st, 2025.
The Church has worked toward the goal of the Great Commission for nearly 2000 years.
Now is the time to accelerate the spread of the Good News to the ends of the earth.
God wants His lost children found. Be a part of the movement to make it happen.
