There are 8 billion people alive today. Of those, approximately 2.5 billion claim to follow Jesus, while the remaining 5.5 billion do not identify with the Christian faith. Despite all our missional activity, the percentage of the global population that follows Christ has remained the same for 123 years. The total number of people living without God is greater than at any time in history: 5.5 billion! There have never been more people in need of the Gospel than now!
This presents the body of Christ with great opportunities and great challenges. The former needs to be inspired and mobilized to effectively engage the latter with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ.
There is a massive, complex task ahead of us. No single organization can tackle this challenge alone. We must work together. GACX (a global alliance for church multiplication) inspires and facilitates the international collaboration needed to establish a church for every 1,000 people on Earth.
