As an organization and spiritual family, Frontier Alliance International (FAI) is committed to exalting the worth of Jesus Christ among the unreached and unengaged at the end of the age. We share Paul's ambition shared in Romans 15:20, to lay foundations for the Gospel where none yet exist, and declare the name of Jesus where He has not yet been known. This is our burden and privilege until our Great King splits the sky in power and glory.
