In a nutshell, AWM is about making disciples of Jesus Christ, seeing churches planted and transforming the Arab world. The video below gives a snapshot of our core values.
A more detailed description of our mission is that:
AWM mobilises teams to glorify God among unreached peoples of the Arab world by initiating church-planting movements in partnership with local churches.
This means we are passionate about…
Unreached Peoples Of The Arab World
The Arab world lies at the heart of the 10/40 Window . The vast majority have yet to hear the gospel. AWM focuses on people groups who have little opportunity to hear and understand the gospel. With a few exceptions, many major towns and cities still have no Christian presence. Where there is a presence, the Church is often under pressure. As well as providing encouragement and training to national fellowships, we are committed to pioneering cross-cultural ministry.
AWM workers serve together in teams to seek the Lord’s vision and purpose for their ministry. Ideally, a team consists of at least three people who are committed to each other and to their common ministry task.
AWM workers, in partnership with others, use a variety of evangelism and discipleship methods to nurture dynamic reproducing Arab churches with a heart for mission.
Both in the sending process and while ministering in the Arab world, AWM recognises the importance of working in close cooperation with the local church. We want to be a valued partner in facilitating the overseas ministries of UK sending churches. And where there are national churches with a heart for the unreached, we want to partner with them in the task if possible.
To fulfil the mission statement, AWM:
- mobilises long-term cross-cultural workers from the international Body of Christ. Short-term workers are also mobilised as appropriate.
- focuses on evangelism, discipleship, Bible teaching, church-planting and leadership development among unreached peoples within the context of holistic gospel witness
- uses creative, relevant and culturally appropriate media strategies
- works in cooperation with others who share our evangelical position and purpose
