GENESIS OF HOPE
The New Testament speaks of groups of believers meeting regularly in the intimacy of a home rather than a church building. This house church was a Christian fellowship group formed in and/or around a house (Gr. oikos). Paul speaks of such a church in the house of Aquila and Priscilla (1 Cor. 16:19; Rom. 16:3, 5), of Philemon (Philemon 1, 2), and of Nympha in Laodicea (Col. 4:15).
Disciples making disciples, is at the heart of the gospel narrative. Discipleship is important because we want people to become fully committed followers of Christ. Discipleship helps believers to grow in their faith, to grow in maturity and wisdom, and build their faith on a strong foundation so that they can then disciple and lead others towards Christ.
We believe God has called the church and his followers to respond to various injustices we experience against humanity today. The Bible gives us specific charge to open our mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. To defend the rights of the poor and to take care of widows & orphans.
RECOGNIZE | RECRUIT | RELEASE
Our strategy over the years has been to recognize indigenous leaders across various states of India & Nepal, pursue their recruitment through intensive systematic theological trainings in their own cities and release them to plant replicating God glorifying home churches in their own areas of influence.
Each year we train between 1000+ indigenous leaders who are passionate about disciple making, evangelism and planting multiplying home churches in India & Nepal.
Over the past two decades REACH SOUTH ASIA has voiced the plight of the persecuted church and believers IN SOUTH ASIA . We believe that it is important that the global church responds in urgency to the cries and hostilities that our persecuted believers face as they propel God's message of salvation in the dark regions of the nation in prayer and support. In James 1:27 we are reminded that "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."
In the past we have assisted missionaries who have been falsely accused or imprisoned, pastors who have been struck down because of their faithful witness, rebuilt houses for communities who were forced out of their homes, rehabilitated families who have been ostracized from their cities, rescued widows & orphans who have been abandoned by the society and continue to provide support for those who have been abandoned by their communities for the sake of the gospel.
Join us in prayer as we continue to serve the persecuted church in India and Nepal.
