"As disciples of Jesus Christ we have been given a specific mission. Our mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ's life, death, resurrection, ascension, and his second coming to the world. We believe that as part of the global church we have both the authority and responsibility to spread this news through word and deed."
--From the Milwood Core Values
The last words spoken by Jesus in each of the synoptic gospels concerns the gospel going out to the nations. For example, Jesus says in Matthew 28, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."
The good news is meant to be spread to all nations! In his book Radical Together, David Platt says, "What we need to understand is that Jesus did not command us simply to take the gospel to as many individual people as we can. Instead, he made it clear that his followers are to make disciples among every people group in the world."
There are well over 6,000 Unreached People Groups (UPG) in the world. They do not have the gospel. Milwood's UPG Initiative is simply our way of obeying Jesus and caring for the nations! Continue reading about the UPG Initiative>>
