What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Christianity Explored sprang from the need to equip ordinary Christians to share the good news of Jesus with those who need to hear it. Studies indicate that people outside the church are more willing to hear the good news than believers are to share it. As Rico Tice, Minister of Evangelism at All Souls Church, Langham Place, in Central London and founder of Christianity Explored says, "Christ calls us to make disciples of all nations. I am convinced that God's Word is not only the message, but the method. With your support, we are helping pastors and lay people all over the world really feel that they can get the Bible open and let it speak for itself. As they do so, blind eyes are opened to the horror of sin and the wonder of grace. What can be more important than that?'
