Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our goal is to Inspire and Equip Christians with the necessary tools to Fulfill the Great Commission by going out into the world and sharing their faith in a loving, biblical manner, without compromising the truth. All of our resources and programs move people towards this goal.

Our strategy is to continue to advance our message of biblical evangelism through existing and cutting-edge fields of contact and communication. We continually examine available modes of media, and the public's rate of interaction with each mode. The message of the gospel needs to go out, and the method needs to be as effective as possible.

We will continue to build upon the foundations of like-minded Christians who desire to see people come to Christ with repentance. We will continue to provide them with as many tools as possible to enable their reach into this world as far and impactful as possible. It is through their support that we are able to continue to produce the multitude of evangelistic resources that we can. It is for God's glory, and their benefit that we exist. Our continual desire is to come alongside churches and Christians, and help them as we work in God's field together.

Ultimately, our success will be determined on an eternal level. But, today, we are able to look at people's responses to our films and other media, and see changes in pockets of today's culture. Our best success occurs when people realize they can share their faith, using a variety of tools, when they thought it was never possible. We receive testimonies stating thus, and we see engagement and understanding through the dissemination of our many resources. We hear back from people who have saved their babies from death (abortion), who have come to repentance and faith in Christ and now live a transformed life, and others who have shared their faith with friends and family for the first time. All this is success.

Ours is an ongoing work. Some of our accomplishments are listed above, but there will always be more to accomplish and create until Christ comes again.
