Summary

The urgency of the Gospel message is clear throughout Scripture. But, in today's world, there are many who have yet to hear it, let alone put their faith in it. We believe that shouldn't be the case. We believe nobody is more effective or efficient in reaching a people group for Christ than its own members.

We strategically support more than 2000 local church leaders with an unquenchable passion for evangelism, who already understand not only the language but also the cultural and spiritual context of their communities. By partnering with them in this way, we are able to be more efficient in spreading the Gospel, intentional discipleship, and investing in the next generation of evangelists.

Through ongoing training, financial support and accountability, we come alongside evangelists already relationally connected to the people around them with the resources they need to maximize their mission and expand the body of Christ around the world.

Purpose

We believe that partnering with local leaders who are relationally connected to their communities is not only the most effective way to share the Gospel but also the most affordable. This method is strategic evangelism. Our National Missionaries are equipped with the local language and the cultural and spiritual context of their communities, which provide strong foundations for evangelism to take root and discipleship to occur naturally.


Mission statement

Reaching Souls International exists to reach the maximum number of people for Christ in the least amount of time in the most efficient way.


Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that all people everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that, for the salvation of lost and sinful people by God's grace, belief by faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit and salvation as a gift from God.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, that they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences.

History

Reaching Souls International began as an answer to the prayer our founder, Jimmy Hodges, prayed over many years: that the Lord would reveal to him the most fruitful ministry strategy to reach souls for Christ. The Lord answered that prayer when Jimmy applied Paul's instructions in 2 Timothy 2:2 to communities where we could come alongside local church leaders, who are already doing their best to reach their own people for Christ. From the very beginning, this winning strategy was the blueprint for Reaching Souls.
