Description

“OUR OBLIGATION TO THE UNREACHED” Romans 1-3 Who Are The Unreached? l A people group among whom there is no indigenous community of believing Christians able to engage the people group with church planting. l Technically speaking, the percentage of evangelical Christians in this people group is less than 2 percent. How Many People Are Unreached? l Over 6,500 people groups are unreached… m Including at least two billion individual people. l Over 3,000 are also unengaged (meaning there is currently no evangelical church planting strategy under way to reach that people group)… m Including around 200 million individual people. What Does It Mean To Be Unreached? l Practically… m You do not currently have access to the gospel. m Unless something changes, you will likely be born, live, and die without ever hearing the gospel. l Biblically… m You have knowledge of God. m You have rejected God. m You stand condemned before God. m You have never heard the good news about how you can be saved by God. Why Must We Go To The Unreached? l Because their knowledge of God is only enough to damn them to hell. l Because the gospel of God is powerful enough to save them for heaven. l Because the plan of God warrants the sacrifices of His people. l Because the Son of God deserves the praises of all peoples.
