Believing & Growing
Believing & GrowingAs a mission organization, GZB sees it as its ‘core business’ to help churches to share the Gospel as living communities of faith. In these living communities of faith people hear the Gospel, but also grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
GZB helps partner churches to plant new churches in areas where a local church does not yet exist. Mission workers walk alongside the partner and are involved in planting and empowering local (house) congregations. GZB also supports Bible translation and distribution work (among prisoners, through Bible shops etc.).
In areas where the church is growing, and also in many ‘closed countries’, there is often a lack of qualified church leaders. GZB is highly convinced of the importance of theological education and discipleship & leadership training in the own national languages for ordinary church members, lay leaders and pastors. GZB invests in the development of methods and materials (e.g. TEE) and the quality and capacity of theological seminaries and faculties.
