We bring the Hope & Light of Jesus to make disciples, plant churches and help develop church networks among Muslim peoples. We often start by addressing felt needs through projects such as improving literacy, micro-finance, medical clinics, and community health and development — all in order to build bridges of trust into communities. We believe we must explain the truth clearly, but with gentleness, love and compassion.
We share our planet with about 1.7 billion Muslim people. Naturally, such a large group represents amazing diversity. There are regional, cultural and language differences. Some are deeply committed to their faith. Others are more nominal or practice a version of Islam that also incorporates folk religion. Some are refugees who have recently fled violence committed in the name of religion and, as a result, are questioning their faith. Some hear stories of Abraham and recognize Truth. Others dream of Jesus and ask to study his Word. Many see prayers in Jesus’ name answered and want to understand the source of his power. Because God is at work, “we are living in the midst of the greatest turning of Muslims to Christ in history,” says author David Garrison.
