The missionary work of Fida and the Finnish Pentecostal churches is based on the Great Commission given by Jesus: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19–20).
Our missionaries share the good news about Jesus, teach the Word of God, participate in Bible translation, reach out to children and young people, and help disadvantaged members of the community.
The objective of our missionary work is to plant new churches that are financially, administratively and theologically independent so that they, in turn, become sending churches.
The missionaries of Finnish Pentecostal churches have worked successfully for a hundred years. In Eastern Africa, for example, there are now Pentecostal denominations that have several million members.
Some missionaries work as entrepreneurs or in their own profession as tentmakers. In addition, some 50 people with relevant professional skills are involved in development cooperation programmes or humanitarian aid projects.
In most cases, missionaries work together with a local church or denomination. The partner knows best the local language, culture, people and conditions.
We want to focus our missionary work particularly on those areas in which the gospel has never been preached. Reaching unreached people groups is an urgent and great missionary challenge. Missionary work is also carried out in Europe, where people are constantly arriving from all over the world and where Christianity has lost ground.
Please pray for global mission work and the workers involved in it!
