And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matthew 24:14
Gap stands for Gospel to All Peoples and is the overseas missions arm of Kensington Temple that enables the ‘world’ part of our mission statement, London and the World for Christ. A key part of our vision is to reach the 10/40 window, the area in the world where the least evangelised people groups reside, some who have never heard the name of Jesus.
Our Senior Minister Colin Dye had a vision of North Africa in which he saw from West Sahara to East Africa being filled with the glory of God. In the next 25 years, we want to reach such nations as Mali, Niger, Mauritania, Chad, Sudan and Tunisia until the whole of this area hears the gospel.
In response to a word from the Lord about revival among the French-speaking peoples of the world, we launched IFIM, a Bible school in Marseille through which we aim to send out train missionaries to impact North Africa. Already through this work we have translated Colin’s Sword of the Spirit books making this training available to the French speaking world.
As part of our global vision Colin has also pioneered work in Brazil where we have encouraged new churchesto be started in Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro and Recife.
We are looking to expand GAP and increase its reach and impact on other nations of the world this coming year and beyond. We would like to see as many people as possible involved – there are several ways you can of participle in this vision:
All of these will help fulfil the great commission to preach the Gospel to All Peoples.
