Assemblies of God World Missions (AGWM)is engaged in missionary endeavor in many lands in pursuit of the original, audacious commitment of the Assemblies of God to unprecedented world evangelism. That commitment, the mission of AGWM, stands on four biblical pillars. We are proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ to the spiritually lost in all the world through every available means.We are establishing churches in more than 200 countries,following the New Testament pattern.
We are training leaders throughout the world to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ to their own people and to other nations. We are touching poor and suffering people with the compassion of Jesus Christ and inviting them to become His followers.
Brief History In May of 1950, approximately 100 pastors and missionaries were led of God to begin a new fundamental, missionary, Baptist movement that would emphasize a worldwide church planting ministry. A simple fellowship of pastors was formed. In the years that have passed since those early days, it has grown dramatically; HOWEVER, it has never deviated from the purpose for which it was founded; to train, equip and support people for the ministry of establishing local Baptist churches around the world. Today, those original 100 have grown into the largest independent Baptist Missionary organization in the world.
We don’t play at missions. We are serious, career missionaries, who have given our time and abilities to reach the tribes and nations that are primarily closed to us – by supporting the men who God already has in place – helping them evangelize and train others
WorldVenture is people. A network of partners working together with a shared vision to see people of all nations transformed by Jesus Christ.
WorldVenture is you. Without your involvement through prayer and giving and service little could be accomplished.
WorldVenture is a community of more than 500 missionaries working in more than 65 countries around the globe.
WorldVenture is a committed staff, working from our Headquarters Office in Colorado and Church Connections Regional Offices across the United States to facilitate the work of missions and to assist churches with their worldwide vision.
The WorldVenture community also shares in a 65-year heritage of mission-minded Christians who have given of themselves to see the work of Christ advance around the world. The organization has a history in the Baptist tradition; today our staff and missionaries come from many evangelical Christian backgrounds.
Pray that Baptist, Pentecostal, and Adventist leadership will see the need for forward progress under the Spirit guidance. Pray that a genuinely indigenous expression of Lithuanian Christianity might develop in the newer Pentecostal and charismatic churches. Pray the government will treat all genuine Christian groups with equality. Pray that evangelicals will work effectively together. Pray the seminaries, universities and training centers may be used to train godly, well-educated and visionary leaders for the nation. Pray for more missionaries to be called to serve, and to serve with commitment and sensitivity. Pray for more radio programs in Lithuanian. (Source: Operation World 2001)
