AMBITION: “I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else’s foundation” (Romans 15:20).
In the very beginning of Paul’s letter to the Romans, he says, “I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome” (Romans 1:15). In all of Paul’s letters, there are 65 references to preaching the gospel. If nothing else, this shows how central the gospel was to his ministry and it should be central to ours. The gospel permeated every aspect of Paul’s ministry, even in his last letter; “Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel” (2 Timothy 2:8).
This ministry, NEW FOUNDATIONS INTERNATIONAL, is bent on discipling believers and planting churches on the foundation of Jesus Christ through training indigenous leaders, not on the basis of anyone else’s works, any other organization, or the methods of men. Paul reminds us that “no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11). Jesus pointed to this principle as laying “the foundation on the rock” (Luke 6:48).
We desire that you build with us through the gospel by going through God’s Plan for His Church training. If this is not possible, you can build with us by praying for an open and effective door for the gospel in every unreached people group around the world. Pray for those we are training. You can send us notes and emails of encouragement to firstname.lastname@example.org or through support for training, translating or printing. Be ambitious in preaching the gospel!
