1. Prayer – Prayer is the first and most important pillar in reaching our communities with the Gospel. We seek God in prayer because He is the Author of Salvation. Jesus tells us in His Word (Bible) “that no one comes to Him unless the Father draws them” (John 6:44). Therefore, we ask God to draw those we share the Gospel with. He also tells us that He wants us ‘to pray for everyone’ and that ‘He wants everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of truth’ (1 Timothy 2:1-5) and ‘that He doesn’t want anyone to perish, but everyone to come to Him in repentance’ (2 Peter 3:8-9).
2. Love – God’s Word tells us that it is through our love that people will know we are followers of Jesus (John 13:35). The second greatest commandment is to love others (Matthew 22:36-40); therefore, we reach out to people in love as we pray for them and tell them about Jesus, as well as meet their needs as we are able.
3. Gospel – The Gospel means “Good News” and the good news is that God Offers Salvation Providing Eternal Life (John 3:16-18). The Gospel meets everyone’s greatest need – to be forgiven and reconciled to God. Therefore, we must not only pray and love others; we must also tell them how God fixed their sin and separation problem through Jesus’ death and resurrection, and invite them to accept Him as their Savior and Lord.
4. Bible – The fourth pillar in reaching our communities for God is the Bible; God’s written revelation. Jesus’ final instructions before going back to Heaven was to make disciples, to bring them into His family (baptize) and to teach them everything He taught them (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore, after we share the Gospel with people, we invite them to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord, to become a part of His family (the Church), and we commit to teaching them how to follow Jesus His way.
These 4 pillars are the heartbeat of what Reach Ministries does when we partner with the local church. We train believers in the classroom and on the streets of their community how to naturally approach and talk to people about Jesus. When believers see how simple it is to talk to people about Jesus, they gain confidence to talk to the people they know about Jesus. When God’s people share His Gospel with the people He’s put in their circle of influence we will see our communities reached and impacted by the Gospel.
Our prayer is that every believer would discover the joy of talking to people about Jesus and mentoring them, helping them learn how to follow Jesus His way so they can discover the abundant life that Jesus provides (John 10:10). This is what we were made for.
