The United Kingdom has a deeply rich, Christian heritage. It’s the birthplace of Charles Spurgeon, Isaac Watts, John & Charles Wesley, John Bunyan, George Whitfield, the Westminster Standards, the London Baptist Confession and so much more. But if you were to look at the UK now, you would see a country that has all but erased that past. In fact, by the year 2020, only 5% of the population will be a member of a church of any kind*. Only a third of those members will belong to an Evangelical church.
Similarly, studies show the United States is increasingly becoming more secular. There is much need for the faithful preaching of God’s word and the establishing of churches both in the United Kingdom and United States.
With that in mind, there are three main areas of focus that we will have for our ministry in the UK.
