Historically, the gospel has mostly been spread throughout the world by Western missionaries. A gospel message that is true has been presented, but it can feel like the religion of another people. Mission ONE creates training materials for both our partners and the Western population that helps shift this narrative to embrace a localized cultural context. When leaders learn to understand the Bible in terms of honor and shame, they present the gospel in ways that connect to all aspects of their community’s lives. Our partners are transforming communities with Christ at the center of their work because the gospel no longer feels like someone else’s story.
