Our VISION is to help equip the Body of Christ worldwide for the fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission and His Cultural Mandate.
Our VISION is to help equip the body of Christ worldwide for the fulfillment of Christ’s great commission and His cultural mandate.
It is our goal to assist the local church in evangelism and discipleship in order to produce healthy church growth. It is our belief that the local church is God’s instrument. EMI works to equip the local church to become self-supporting, self-governing and self-propagating
We have a particular burden to assist the persecuted Church and the struggling church in developing countries. It is our intention to work in a way that most glorifies Christ, without creating or encouraging dependencies or entitlement.
We seek to give the struggling Church a hand up, not a hand out. To that end, we seek to promote trust in Christ alone, believe that anything we do that causes the local Church to trust in our Ministry instead of Christ is ultimately destructive.
In short, it is our intention to work ourselves out of a job by equipping the local church to be everything that Christ commanded it to be. To this end, we seek to assist and equip the local Church for healthy growth so that we are no longer needed and can move on to other mission fields and repeat the process.
We believe that we can be most effective in developing local church leadership by ongoing discipleship and continued theological education for pastors and lay leaders. Also recognizing the need to reach the next generation for Christ, we emphasize training for youth and children’s workers. As we believe that many of the problems facing the developing church have a generational origin, it is therefore our intention to simultaneously equip the existing church leadership and the youth and children’s leaders, helping to ensure continuity in future church growth.
