What we do and how we do it
Every Home for Christ is known for taking a strategic approach and working locally to fulfill its global mission. This includes the following key elements:
RESEARCH — Everywhere we work, we ask, “How many people live in this region? How do they live? What do they believe? What will it take to reach them with the Gospel?” EHC workers do everything they can to understand the social, religious, political and economic realities of those they seek to reach.
STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS — EHC has partnered with scores of Christian individuals, congregations and organizations. Whether the task is training, transportation, translation or other work, EHC recognizes the value of partnerships. We also provide other organizations with printed gospel literature.
SATURATION — Going to every home in a community with the Gospel is how EHC fulfills the call to “all” and “every” given in the Great Commission. Saturation ensures that the influence of the Gospel is present everywhere in society and accessible to people.
Systematically going to every dwelling in a nation with the Gospel is a doable and reachable goal!
Local literature and leadership
GOSPEL LITERATURE — EHC uses a variety of media and literature to communicate the Gospel, with our main tools being printed material (or other reusable media such as recordings for the illiterate). We use gospel literature that is right for the audience and have material for adults and children in the language or dialect of the local people.
LEADERSHIP — EHC works through qualified local leadership, people who know the culture, speak the language and identify with those they are reaching for Christ.
Follow-up and spiritual nurture
DISCIPLESHIP — We conscientiously seek to cultivate and conserve the fruit of every outreach. At EHC, we include response cards with all of our evangelistic literature. When our overseas offices receive a response, we respond with a multi-lesson Bible correspondence course and guide seekers into existing churches or local EHC Christ Group fellowships.
CHURCH PLANTING — When we present the Gospel in places where no churches exist, EHC workers plant Christ Group fellowships to provide places for worship and training of new disciples. To date, more than 200,000 Christ Group fellowships have been established, with many becoming mature congregations.
Undergirded by prayer
EHC mobilizes believers worldwide to pray for its evangelistic and discipleship ministry. To get involved, see Prayer.
Romania at the Crossroads
Spiritually, Romania is in desperate need. “Years of Communism hardened people’s souls. Today many of our people are on a materialistic quest,” says Samuel Tutac, EHC’s director in Romania.
Nevertheless, many Romanians are open to receiving the Gospel, especially young people. But they are the ones under greatest threat from abuse, violence, drugs and pornography.
Our goal is to see them — and people of all ages — come to know Christ.
EHC’s ministry in Romania is thriving through partnerships. In one case, a 20-person team from Switzerland took the Gospel to 21 rural villages.
A great work remains. More than 10,700 Romanian villages have no evangelical church presence. Pray that they will be reached.
