We believe that God’s heart is for His Church. As the Church, we are the physical expression of His love on earth. This is why church planting is so important, and this is the area of ministry in which we will be involved France: church planting. Not building up more buildings, but evangelizing and creating disciples who will be added to the Body of Christ.
We are missionary appointees with Pioneers, a Christian mission agency that specializes in church planting among unreached people groups, and specifically, we will be serving with one of their France team which ministers to French nationals.
Our ministry vision is to establish a Church Planting Movement (CPM) in France through relational evangelism and discipleship among the secular French, and also to mobilize and equip French believers to fulfill the Great Commission. While living in and among the people we seek to reach, we strive to penetrate the spiritual darkness of France with the Light of Christ.
France is generally considered a Christian nation, even in missionary circles, because it is nominally Roman Catholic in tradition and history. However, statistically, only 5% of French Catholics claim to actually believe in God.
According to eglises.org, there are approximately only 2,200 evangelical churches to reach a population of 67 million. There are only 1-1.5% evangelical Christians in the whole country of France. According to the Joshua Project’s definition, the French are an “unreached people group” because it has less than 2% evangelical witness.
