Did you know that an increasing number of missions organizations, including New Tribes Mission, are using creation evangelism to reach pagan cultures with the gospel? They start with Genesis.

Numerous organizations have discovered that when missionaries preach only the message of Jesus dying on the Cross for their sins, many people don’t understand what that means. The people they are trying to reach have only heard part of the gospel (the part beginning in Matthew)—when they really need to hear all of it.

Missions organizations that start with the book of Genesis to explain where people came from, how sin entered the world and why man needs a Savior have discovered that the people they are trying to reach are better able to understand why Jesus came to die on the Cross for them once they hear the whole gospel, from the beginning.

If your ministry uses creation evangelism “to preach the gospel to every creature” as commanded in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), we’d like to hear from you.
