Summary



Currently, more than 3 billion people have little or no access to the gospel. We believe this can change. As we work with indigenous leaders in more than 30 countries, we are committed to advancing the gospel to the least reached.

We identify indigenous leaders with a vision to advance the gospel to the least reached.
We connect leaders to global capital: financial, relational, knowledge, prayer.
We partner with leaders to accelerate their vision.

Statement of faith

We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

ONE GOD ...eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit...

OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ...God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory...

THE SALVATION OF LOST AND SINFUL MAN ...through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit...

THE HOLY SPIRIT ...by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ...

THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT ...of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ...

THE RESURRECTION ...of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

History

In the late 1930s, as WWII loomed, Japan invaded China. At this time, many western missionaries in China found themselves forced out due to the war. One of the last missionaries to leave China, Duncan McRoberts, had a deep burden to see the gospel reach the lost. He gathered a group of businessmen to support the existing Chinese church. Together, they formed a partnership model that allowed western Christians to fuel the vision of indigenous leaders in China. The China Native Evangelistic Crusade (CNEC) was formed in 1943 with Calvin Chao as their first leader. Partnerships quickly multiplied and by 1949 there were 150 indigenous leaders in China supported through this model.

In 1960, Allen Finley became the first president of CNEC, and partnership expanded throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Allen focused on coming alongside indigenous leaders to truly fuel their vision for their community-our partnership model that still exists today. In the mid-1980s, CNEC officially became Partners International, and in 1999 God gave a new vision to reach those in the world who do not have access to the gospel. At this time, the least reached became our sole focus. Today, working in over 30 of the least reached countries, we continue to fuel indigenous leaders through resources, training, and prayer, aiming to reach the 3.2 billion people who have not yet had an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel.
