Mission & Distinctives


 

Mission
To Every Tribe exists to extend the worship of Christ among all peoples by mobilizing the church, training disciplemakers, and sending missionary teams to plant churches among the unreached.

 

Distinctives

THEOLOGICAL

Reformed
We believe God is sovereign over all, including the process of salvation, and strive to be God-centered.

Baptistic
We believe every believer is to be publicly baptized immediately following conversion.

IDEOLOGICAL

Grace
We affirm the work of spiritual transformation is the Holy Spirit’s, and humbly seek to minister in the freedom Christ has granted from all external expectations other than those specifically stated in Scripture for Christians.

Prayer
We humbly commit ourselves to be a Spirit-led mission fueled by intercessory prayer.

Warfare
We expect satanic resistance as we spearhead the proclamation of the gospel in territories of spiritual darkness. We expect the Holy Spirit to use any or all of the spiritual gifts described in Scripture, and depend upon them, in order to advance the gospel.

Martyrdom
We are convinced Jesus is worth embracing a life of sacrifice, suffering, and martyrdom in order to advance the gospel as senders and goers.

METHODOLOGICAL

Church Planting
We seek to train obedience-oriented disciples who make other disciples in planting indigenous churches that are self-led, self-supporting, self-theologizing, and self-reproducing.

Pre-Field Training
We invest in extensive theological and missiological pre-field training of missionaries to equip them to thrive on the field and to enhance their ability to plant healthy churches.

Team Ministry
We are committed to ministry through communities of believers where individual gifts work together for the good and effectiveness of the whole, and model the body of Christ to unbelievers.
