We exist to honor God by establishing Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.
2021 Year in review
Every Nation is a global family of churches dedicated to establishing church-planting churches, reaching the next generation on the campus, and preaching the gospel to every nation.
THE UNITED NATIONS RECOGNIZES 195 NATIONS.
Every Nation has churches or church plants in 81 of these nations.
There are still 114 nations without an Every Nation church or church plant.
We plant churches that reach the campus.
Most people who come to faith in Christ do so before the age of twenty-five.
These young men and women, who will be the future leaders of the world, are on the college campus today.
We plant churches that reach the campus because we firmly believe that if we change the campus, we will eventually change the family, the nation, and the world.
The Apostle Paul exhorted Timothy to “guard the good deposit … with the help of the Holy Spirit” (2 Timothy 1:14). Like Timothy, every ministry has a good deposit that must be guarded. In Every Nation, our foundational values articulate for us the good deposit we as a ministry must guard together, lest they be lost. Whether we’re building a discipleship group, a music group, or planting a new church, these core values are the essential issues and help describe how we build.
Because Jesus is “King of kings and Lord of lords,” we believe that whole-hearted submission to God’s will and his Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.
Because God’s heart is to reach the lost, we’re passionate about preaching the gospel and doing ministry in a way that engages people outside of the Christian faith. We seek to build churches primarily through evangelism, not transfer growth.
JOHN 3:16, LUKE 19:10
Because we’re called to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples—not conducting meetings, facilitating programs, or building buildings.
Because we’re called to establish churches and campus ministries in every nation, we’re committed to a culture of empowering leadership. We’re intentionally multi-generational, and we deliberately create opportunities and platforms to develop the next generation of leaders.
II TIMOTHY 2:2
Because the family is the foundation and validation of ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal success. And because we believe God has called us to be a spiritual family, we embrace community, reject the idea of disposable relationships, and choose to walk in love, respect, and unity.
