Mission Sending Agency of the PCA
MTW advances the work of the body of Christ worldwide through a wide variety of word and deed ministries by identifying, selecting, training and sending men and women and integrating these into church-planting movements. We minister among unreached people groups in world-class cities as well as hinterland areas, partnering with national churches and indigenous leaders whenever possible. MTW also partners with local PCA churches to glorify God through the discovery and engagement of their unique potential, purpose and passion for cross-cultural ministry.
Reformed and Covenantal
MTW upholds the doctrines of sovereign grace and the truth that God saves His people as described in the Westminster Standards. The Holy Scriptures are inerrant and authoritative, relating the reliable history of God’s covenantal relationship with His children. In regard to that relationship, it is clear that missions is a divine enterprise in which God commands and graciously accepts the obedience of His children. Our foundation for missions is the dual truth that God chose in eternity those who will be saved and that He also uses us as instruments in the process of saving them.
Church Planting Movements
A church-planting movement is a Spirit-directed, vision-driven, sustained expansion of Christ's Kingdom among a particular geographic or ethnic people. This is accomplished through indigenously led churches resulting in ongoing church multiplication and renewal that significantly impacts all levels of society-spiritually, socially and culturally. We will advance church-planting movements by partnering with an existing group or denomination that is Reformed and covenantal. When there is no such group we may establish a new Reformed and covenantal denomination. As the Holy Spirit leads we will also take opportunities to impact others from our Reformed and covenantal perspective.
MTW believes that the Church is God's instrument to complete the missionary task. Our approach is to advance movements of the gospel through the planting of self-propagating, self-supporting, and self-governing churches, which live out a dynamic Reformed and covenantal faith through trained and empowered leadership.
