Communities of believers in every language group living out the Word of God
Discovering the All-Nations Vision
We partner with churches to send teams who facilitate Bible translation and community development while working to establish indigenous churches.
(Note: Underlined terms are featured below.)
Why Our Mission Starts with the Church
More about our mission
Teams are sent ultimately to make disciples of Jesus and plant local churches. Every team member is involved with church planting.
Church-planting teams include members trained to work with mother-tongue speakers in translating Scripture into their language and making it available in accessible formats.

Church-planting teams include members trained to help the people identify and develop God-given resources in areas including agriculture, economics, and health. Teams also facilitate literacy initiatives.
See our Community Development Philosophy
The overarching goal of all efforts is a maturing church that is set apart to God yet reproducible within its cultural context.

Tradition and Innovation
Embracing our Anabaptist heritage, acknowledging its values and strengths,
while stepping forward boldly to take new territory in Jesus’ name.
Humility and Confidence
Prayerfully dependent on God, acknowledging our inadequacy and the impossibility of the vision,
yet assured of God’s call to make disciples of Jesus in every nation and to equip his people for the task.
Collaboration and Conviction
Working together with others, acknowledging that we are not called to work alone,
but willing to stand alone for values that honor our Lord Jesus and His Word.
