Why We Exist
The end goal of God is His glory known and enjoyed among all the nations. Therefore, the end goal of every Christian and every local church is the spread of God’s glory among all the nations. The plan Jesus has given for accomplishing this goal is the Great Commission: making disciples and multiplying churches among all the nations. And the nations are filled with urgent spiritual and physical needs. Billions of people in thousands of people groups are unreached by the gospel, and many of them are suffering in unimaginable ways.
Therefore, Radical seeks to help train and equip Christians and churches to spread gospel hope on the front lines of urgent need among the nations.
