We minister among unreached people groups:
In 2,500 of the world’s 6,500 people groups, there is no church, nor is there any work being done to establish a church. These are the people among whom Ethnos360 works.
We work in the culture and language of the people:
These people groups’ cultures and languages have isolated them from the gospel. Missionaries must learn their language and understand their culture in order to clearly present the gospel and effectively plant a church.
We present foundational Bible teaching:
Unreached people groups have no concept of the God of the Bible. So Bible teaching begins at the same place God began with His chosen people: at the beginning. Chronological Bible teaching presents a foundation for understanding Jesus’ death and resurrection.
We establish mature churches:
Following the pattern seen in Acts as God’s people carried out the Great Commission, missionaries seek to establish mature churches that can take their rightful place as agents of change in their own communities and partners in the Great Commission.
Ethnos360’s Doctrinal Statement and Core Values
- In the word-by-word inspiration, inerrancy, and final authority of the Holy Scriptures.
- In one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- In the Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man; His virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, present advocacy, and His bodily return.
- In the fall of man, resulting in his complete and universal separation from God and his need of salvation.
- That the Lord Jesus Christ shed His blood and died as a sacrifice for the sins of every person in the whole world.
- That salvation is a free and everlasting gift of God, entirely apart from works, received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
- That the Holy Spirit regenerates with divine life and personally indwells the believer upon faith in Christ for salvation.
- In the bodily resurrection and unending life of the saved with the Lord and the bodily resurrection and unending punishment of the unsaved.
- The church, beginning at Pentecost, is the body of Christ comprised of those who have trusted Jesus Christ as Savior.
- It is the church’s responsibility to glorify Christ by preaching the gospel to the world and making disciples of all nations.
We hold and teach the following positions:
- The pretribulational rapture of the church and Christ’s premillennial return to the earth.
- The historical-grammatical interpretation of the Bible.
- That a soul once saved can never be lost.
- The practice of believer’s baptism by immersion.
- That we do not practice what are commonly known as the “sign gifts”.
- The Word of God as our final authority
- A Spirit-controlled life
- Dependence on God
- The role and responsibility of the local church in the Great Commission
- Readiness to sacrifice for Christ and His church
- Godly relationships and interdependence in ministry
- The potential of all believers to be used by God in the Great Commission
- Excellence and urgency in all we do to finish the task
