1.3 BILLION Souls
2500+ People Groups
330 MILLION Deities
2.3% Christians of all faiths. Less than half of these are Evangelical.
The greatest need for the indigenous Evangelical Church to be an effective witness is the same as any where on earth. They need to KNOW the Word of God, so that they can KNOW the God of the Word and live out their faith in the midst of idolatry.
6000+ pastors receiving HBM Bible Training in "1 on 3" Disciple Making Groups, seminars and online lessons.
3000 young men and women evangelists being sent out to boldly share the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ.
30,000+ Church members being challenged to be Disciple Makers with their family and friends and neighbors.
Hope Builders Ministries' mission is to partner with indigenous missionaries who will carry the Gospel of the Kingdom to the thousands of Christian churches and teach them to "make disciples" and reach millions of others for Christ in India.
When pastors are equipped in the Word of God and encouraged to make their church members into disciples of Jesus Christ the believers are empowered to boldly proclaim Christ with their families and neighbors. They become Ambassadors with a ministry and message (2 Corinthians 5:17-21).
Native Christians know the culture and the languages and are best able to bring a clear Gospel message to their own people groups when they know the Word of God. They can communicate in word and life what the ONE true God of Heaven is saying to mankind so that they can be saved from His wrath against sin and the sinner.
HBM is partnered directly with two native directors working in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana with less than 3% of the 85 million population being Christian and even less who are evangelical.
Through your partnership HBM India provides vital support to these two men and their families enabling them to travel extensively to rural remote Christian Churches.
HBM also provides Bibles, bicycles and other resources for pastors and their churches helping them to GO and evangelize their people, Baptizing them into the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and TEACH them all that the Lord has taught us in the WORD of GOD.
