Loving God. Loving People.
This is the foundational motive behind all our ministries and the ultimate goal of all our outreach. Loving and honouring God is the starting point of all that we do because our priority is the glory of God, not the success of our ministry. The chief end of Every Nation Church is
to always “love God and to enjoy Him forever.” That is why we do what we do.
To the ends of the earth
We’re a global movement dedicated to establishing church-planting churches, reaching the next generation on the campus, and preaching the gospel to every nation.
The Great Commission calls us to preach the gospel to all people. We will not stop until we have done our part in reaching every nation in our generation.
We go to the nations.
We reach the campus.
The future leaders of the world are on the college campus today. If we change the campus, we will eventually change families, nations, and the world.
The church is God’s primary vehicle for advancing his kingdom in the earth today. Our goal is to plant churches that will plant more churches.
We establish churches.
We exist to honour God by establishing Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered,
socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.
We remain focused on Christ—above vision, man, doctrine, or experience. We put all our energy into pointing people to nothing and no one else but Christ.
We welcome and celebrate the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, who enables us to honour God and become effective witnesses of the gospel.
We demonstrate the compassion and character of Christ to the community and culture that we are in.
The Apostle Paul exhorted Timothy to “guard the good deposit … with the help of the Holy Spirit”
(2 Timothy 1:14).
Our core values articulate for us the good deposit we as a church and ministry must guard together and they help describe how we build.
Because Jesus is “King of kings and Lord of lords,” we believe that whole-hearted submission to God’s will and his Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.
Because God’s heart is to reach the lost, we’re passionate about preaching the gospel and doing ministry in a way that engages people outside of the Christian faith. We seek to build churches primarily through evangelism, not transfer; through birth, not adoption.
JOHN 3:16, LUKE 19:10
Because we’re called to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples—not conducting meetings, facilitating programs, or building buildings.
Because we’re called to establish churches and campus ministries in every nation, we’re committed to a culture of empowering leadership. We’re intentionally multi-generational, and we deliberately create opportunities and platforms to develop the next generation of leaders.
II TIMOTHY 2:2
Because the family is the foundation and validation of ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal success. And because we believe God has called us to be a spiritual family, we embrace community, reject the idea of disposable relationships, and choose to walk in love, respect, and unity.
