Assemblies of God World Missions (AGWM)is engaged in missionary endeavor in many lands in pursuit of the original, audacious commitment of the Assemblies of God to unprecedented world evangelism. That commitment, the mission of AGWM, stands on four biblical pillars. We are proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ to the spiritually lost in all the world through every available means.We are establishing churches in more than 200 countries,following the New Testament pattern.
We are training leaders throughout the world to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ to their own people and to other nations. We are touching poor and suffering people with the compassion of Jesus Christ and inviting them to become His followers.
Brief History In May of 1950, approximately 100 pastors and missionaries were led of God to begin a new fundamental, missionary, Baptist movement that would emphasize a worldwide church planting ministry. A simple fellowship of pastors was formed. In the years that have passed since those early days, it has grown dramatically; HOWEVER, it has never deviated from the purpose for which it was founded; to train, equip and support people for the ministry of establishing local Baptist churches around the world. Today, those original 100 have grown into the largest independent Baptist Missionary organization in the world.
Pray the Lord would arrest the spiritual slide away from faith and awaken Icelanders to their spiritual needs. Pray that churches that are faithful to the gospel would prosper in the Lord. Pray for a surge of new vigor and fervor in the churches, and among the leadership and the schools where pastors are trained. Pray that the living faith and unity of Evangelicals might open the hearts of many to the good news. Pray that the students who love the Lord may maintain a glowing testimony amidst widespread indifference. Pray that the Word of God may filter into every element of society. Pray that Christian radio would bring many unbelievers to faith. (Source: Operation World 2001)
