When missionaries landed on distant shores and started building relationships with local people, they found that God was already there. God has always been with all of creation, and through congregations, seminaries, and lay training schools, international partners are helping to share the good news of God's abundant life with all people while developing a vision of God that is faithful both to their lives and to the Gospel.
As the Apostle Paul wrote, each part of the body of Christ has an important role to play, and when our brothers and sisters are not included, we find our own faith incomplete. International partners have been very active in strengthening this body. In Fiji, seminaries are helping people to see the connection between their traditional beliefs and the responsibility of creation care. In China, the world's largest Bible printer is producing more than 10 million Bibles annually in dozens of languages that will benefit Christians in Southern Asia, South America and in many parts of Africa.
Through the sending of staff to assist in theological education, ministry sponsorship, and support for rebuilding congregations, Global Ministries works with hundreds of partners in strengthening the body of Christ.
