Who we are?
A mission enterprise in association with Frontline Fellowship.
What is our goal?
To mobilise and coordinate an effective mission to evangelise and disciple the unreached people in the Congo River basin.
Why do we do it?
The work of Dr .David Livingstone and the Baptist Missionary Society had suffered some neglect by the late 1950s. God’s Great Commission work along the Congo River is not complete. Establishing sustainable missions in central Africa regions is historically very challenging. At Frontline Mission any challenge, especially a neglected or restricted access area in war torn regions of Southern Africa, cannot remain as it is, but must be overcome, reached and served with the Gospel or Good News.
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. - Mark 16:15
An estimated 18 million people are spread out in often very isolated villages in the Congo River basin. Their daily existence is desolate, and they desire more in life. The Congo River is very deep at places. It is a fast-flowing river up to 16 km wide in the rainy season. The distance from Kisangani to Kinshasa is 1 734 km and there are 14 000 km of riverbanks to reach when the many tributaries are considered. River blindness caused by the black fly is prevalent and often goes untreated, leaving many to beg for a living.
1. Record the village GPS location and description as unreached or reached as part of the church planting program.
2. Start or continue the saturation church planting model (stream) and schedule the three-year Pastor Training program which is done from the nearest town at six-month intervals.
3. Establish and expand the local pastor’s mentorship program.
4. Make sure the villagers receive Bibles in their local language.
5. Move on to the next isolated, unreached, or undiscipled village.
6. Relieve outreach team members as international partnerships and circumstances allow.
7. Remain in prayer for provision and perseverance.
8. Do river trading between riverside villages to help with mission sustainability and local goodwill.
9. Establishing missionary logistic, outreach, and rural development routes, - in this case between Cape Town (RSA) and Kisangani (DRC).
And this Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.- Matthew 24:14
