“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them…” Matthew 28:19,20
The Philippines boasts of being the “only Christian nation in Asia.” So, the work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His part of redemption is completed in this part of the world right? Yes, the first part of the Great Commission has been fulfilled, but the second part, the “teaching them to observe…” is ongoing.
The work continues not just in the Philippines but throughout the world because of this reality >>> “And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy…“This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me; in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” Mark 7:6-8.
This in great part, is the call by the Lord for My Father’s House, “…to equip the saints for the work of ministry,” not based on the tradition of man, but on the Word of God.
The Mission: “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.” Teach and declare the whole counsel of God by the Holy Spirit to the people He calls to Himself in Tagaytay, Philippines and beyond.
Colossians 1:28; Acts:20:27
The Vision: “Until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, ” That the body, the church, be united in maturity in Jesus Christ, to the praise, to the glory of His Name.
Wake up call! Here are some numbers worth considering:
In 2012, the Philippines had…
Population = 103,100,000
Unreached with the Gospel at 5,017,000
Number of People Groups – 199, 30 of whom are unreached
Breakdown = 91% Christian (83% Roman Catholic, 12.2% Protestant / Evangelical); 4.8% Islam; 3.2% Ethnic Religions
As of 2017…
Population = 103,934,000
Unreached now at 5,180,000 (5%)
Number of People Groups – 200, unreached = 30 (15%)
Breakdown – 91% Christian (82.2% Roman Catholic, 8.4% Protestant/Evangelical, Independent 8.7%); Islam at 4.8%; and Ethnic Religions at 3.2%.
+ The numbers over the last 5 years have not changed significantly, the population yes, but the other statistics have not. Sadly, there seems to be a reduction amongst the evangelical population, the remnant are those that remain. It is these remnant and the growing unreached people group that we hope to reach, the unreached reached.
