Jesus calls us to reach India with the gospel. IGO, an indigenous Indian ministry, serves as an important link between western and Indian Christians.

Today, few of India's 3,000 ethnic groups have a growing church. IGO takes the Good News to those who do not. More than 1.35 billion people live in India. India is the world's largest Hindu nation, the second largest Muslim nation, and the home of Buddhism and Sikhism.

God is at work in India today. Jesus Christ loves India. Our Lord commands us to, "Go and make disciples of all nations." "All peoples"-tribes, castes, and ethnic groups. India alone has more than 3,000 of them, more than any other country in the world.

IGO believes God has given us the mandate to fulfill the Great Commission, and we share today's opportunities in India to proclaim the gospel to their people. We seek to fulfill this mandate in a manner that honors the Lord in all seasons.

In 1923, Pastor K.E. Abraham of India put this philosophy to work when he began to train Indian evangelists and church planters. His son, Pastor Stephen Abraham, and grandson, Rev. Dr. T. Valson Abraham, have continued his work.

Rev. Dr. T. Valson Abraham founded India Gospel Outreach in 1984 to train Indian evangelists to plant churches in all 3,000 people groups and 28,000+ zip codes of India. India Bible College & Seminary (in India) and Bible training centers throughout India train and send Indian evangelists to tell ALL of India's peoples of Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord.

Program accomplishments

Over 15,000 churches planted.
