Summary

For decades, Reach the Rest has been developing an approach that offers people in the hardest-to-reach regions of the world an opportunity to hear and receive the gospel. We've learned that, when we resource and support local believers who share a language and culture, they can make trusted connections with the unreached in their regions and more effectively introduce people to the light of Jesus.

Mission statement

For decades, Reach the Rest has been developing an approach that offers people in the hardest-to-reach regions of the world an opportunity to hear and receive the gospel. We've learned that, when we resource and support local believers who share a language and culture, they can make trusted connections with the unreached in their regions and more effectively introduce people to the light of Jesus. So, it's become our mission to pair your prayers and offerings for the lost with these modern-day disciples. When we do, we can all fulfill the Great Commission and see the love of Jesus shared with every single soul.


Statement of faith

At Reach the Rest, we accept the Bible, God's Word, to be our only authority in faith and practice, and make the following declarations of belief:

THE WORD OF GOD

We believe the Bible to be the only Word of God: fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and having supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13).

THE TRINITY

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14).

GOD THE FATHER

We believe in God the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayers, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (John 17:3; Ephesians 1:17, 20-21; I Corinthians 2:6-13; I John 5:14-15; Jeremiah 9:23-24; John 3:16-17).

JESUS CHRIST

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. (John 1:1-2; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5; Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2).

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (John 16:8-11; II Corinthians 3:6; I Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18).

REGENERATION

We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation and that there are no good deeds a person can do to free himself from condemnation. We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and trust in Him by faith as the only way to salvation are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:18-19).

THE LAST THINGS

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth and the establishment of His Kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal peace and joy of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked. (I Peter 4:5; Romans 14:9; II Timothy 4:1).

THE CHURCH

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-27; I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 11:2; Acts 14:27; Acts 18:22; Acts 20:17; I Timothy 3:1-3; Titus 1:5-11; Acts 13:1-4; Acts 15:19-31; Acts 20:28; Romans 16:1, 4; I Corinthians 3:9, 16; I Corinthians 5:4-7, 13; I Peter 5:1-4).
