Evangelism and Discipleship

Building Christ's church throughout the world is our top priority. We do this by assisting indigenous ministries with the resources they need to reach the world's last remaining unreached people groups with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Christian Aid Mission helps local believers be salt and light to a dark world through projects that benefit entire communities. For example, in poverty stricken areas where illiteracy is high, indigenous missionaries open schools. They help pull women out of prostitution by teaching them a vocational skill such as sewing.

Charting impact

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

We seek to establish a witness for Christ in every nation. By assisting indigenous missionaries, that equips them to lead first generations of believers to Christ in their own language groups. The opportunity to make a significant impact in the world for Christ has never been greater.

Building Christ's church throughout the world is our top priority. We do this by assisting indigenous ministries with the resources they need to spread the gospel, transform communities through community engagement projects. and share practical aid with the poor and needy.

We have a network of over 400 indigenous ministries. Each indigenous ministry we assist is evaluated to verify their faith, financial integrity and fruitfulness. We help them sustain and grow their work by making their needs known to believers in developed nations.

Christian Aid mission has assisted thousands of indigenous ministries to share the gospel with unreached poeple groups in lands of poverty, where Christians are a persecuted minority, and where foreign missionaries are not allowed to go.
