Who We Are: Gospel Light Worldwide

 

Our Mission

To know Jesus Christ and to make Him known worldwide through Bible-based, culturally relevant teaching resources, books, and curriculum. Our focus is for people’s lives to be changed: through a relationship with Jesus Christ and through the study of His Word.


Our Vision

To see many people accept Salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ and to give them a foundation in the Bible.


Our Bible Verse

Your word is a lamp to my feet
        and a light to my path.

        — Psalm 119:105 ESV

How Gospel Light Worldwide Accomplishes This

 

Ministry to children is our primary purpose.

 

We serve the international Christian community by:

  • Helping primarily children to enter and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through culturally relevant, age-appropriate Bible curriculum and resources. Material is contextualized and translated when necessary.
  • Partnering with other international ministries & resident Christians to identify, train and equip local
    leaders and entities that can print & distribute the materials and resources to teach the Bible. Our desire is to transition the responsibilities to the local church or other sustainable ministry organizations as soon as possible, generally after the first printing.
  • Training indigenous Bible teachers in how to best utilize the Bible curriculum for the children they represent and to teach others to do the same.

Established in 2001, we have had projects in key regions of the world, and have successfully transitioned to partners located in Eastern Europe (former Eastern-block countries), South Africa and Mainland China.

Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired & authoritative Word of God, in the original manuscripts, completely accurate and without error.

We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who being fully God became fully man, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was raised bodily, is exalted to God’s right hand, and will personally come again.

We believe that all have sinned and are guilty before God, and, as a result, all, both individually and corporately, suffer the consequences of the fall and are under condemnation.

We believe that, because of His love, God sent His son Jesus Christ, who inaugurated His kingdom, provided atonement for sin, conquered the principalities and powers, is reconciling the world to Him, and upon his return, will consummate righteousness, power and glory, ridding His kingdom of evil forever.

We believe that all those who repent and believe in Jesus Christ as the only Savior, are delivered from the judgment of God and are born-again into life eternal, and therefore are called as Jesus-believers, to be instruments for God’s glory.

We believe in the Holy Spirit who reveals and glorifies Jesus Christ, and works to bring people to faith and obedience to a belief in Jesus Christ as only Savior, and dwells in Jesus-believers, equipping and empowering them for lives of holiness and fruitful service for His glory.

We believe the Church, the Body of Christ, is composed of all Jesus-believers and exists to fulfill Christ’s mission, making disciples in all nations, all to the glory of God.

We believe in the resurrection of the body, the everlasting punishment of unbelievers and the everlasting blessedness of believers in the presence of Jesus Christ.
