TGC International Outreach is engaged in Theological Famine Relief for the Global Church. We create Relief Projects by working with translators, publishers, and printers here in North America as well as overseas, and donate these resources through global missions networks. Through your generous gifts, these projects enable us to strengthen thousands of church leaders in Asia, Africa, and South America.
Roman Catholicism was brought from the Portuguese colonial era and quickly mixed with traditional animistic African religions. This syncretism and ecumenism are very common and jeopardizes a biblical vision of the Gospel and the true church of Christ.
The Church in the African continent is growing significantly in number, however most leaders have little or no formal training. Eager to grow numerically, many have abandoned God's word as the guide, which directs us in how we build His church.
There has been minimal investment in the formation of sound leaders, and informal training is the most common. Thus there are few men well prepared to teach sound biblical truth. This resource will help meet this need, and bring training they otherwise would not have access to.
Many people do not realize that, in the African continent nearly 50 million people speak Portuguese from various countries such as Mozambique, Angola, and other countries. Most of this region has been severely affected by civil wars and plagued by poverty and misery.
The Portuguese language spread during the colonial era, most prominently to Brazil, Mozambique, Angola and Portugal. Worldwide, there are approximately 178 million first language Portuguese speakers.
Editora FIEL's mission is to spread among Portuguese-speaking peoples worldwide the truths of biblical Christianity, the contours of which have been shaped by the doctrines of sovereign grace, which gave birth to the Reformation and center upon the glorious redeeming work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the only Mediator between God and man.
9Marks is a ministry dedicated to equipping church leaders with a biblical vision and practical resources. Our goal is simple: churches that display the glory of God.
