In 1800, only 1% of all Christians lived outside of Europe and North America. In 1900, 10% of all Christians lived outside of Europe and North America. Today, two-thirds of all Christians live outside of Europe and North America. We live in a time of unprecedented evangelism. One third of the world calls itself Christian, and ours is the largest religion on every continent except Asia. It is found in all 238 countries of the world.

The gospel explosion of the 20th Century is gaining even more momentum in the 21st. For the first time in 2000 years, missionaries are starting to talk about literally reaching the world in our generation. What a time to be a Christian! What an opportunity to reap eternal rewards…or regrets!
Through our faith promise missions program, highlighted at our annual Missions Conference, Camp Creek supports 60 missionaries and mission projects around the world. Every year we offer our people an opportunity to visit a mission field. We also alert our people to believers in bonds, and give them opportunities to help those who are persecuted for Jesus' sake. And we equip our people to engage in local mission projects right here at home.
