To bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the most unreached areas of the world and do everything in our power to give every creature at least one chance to respond to the Gospel.
This will be accomplished through first MOBILIZATION of the church, the body of Jesus Christ, towards global evangelism to the unreached.
This will be accomplished second through MASS EVANGELISM. One generation is given to save one generation and Christ desires no men to be lost, but all to come to the knowledge of the truth and be saved. We believe in harvesting as many as possible, in as short time as possible to complete the task in the light of the coming day of the Lord.
This will be accomplished third through MISSION NETWORKING, through and with any existing church willing to reach the unreached. This is to be governed by local mission boards set up for this purpose and accomplished by training and commissioning missionaries to plant churches in pioneer areas. This from local “store houses”, prepared by the Lord, close to unreached areas of the world.
To never rest doing the above mentioned things until every tribe, nation, language and people will be represented before the Lamb of God ().
This “assignment” has been given to the church 2000 years ago. It is still uncompleted. We have been called and are recognizing that it must be completed before the return of King Jesus (). We therefore are ready.
To involve any enterprise that seems necessary to complete the “assignment” that Joshua Campaign’s vision is gathering us to complete.
At the age of 21, Karl Hargestam left his home, Sweden, for the mandate God had given him to reach the unreached people in Africa with the Gospel. During his early ministry in Africa Karl together with his family and staff became the reason for an enormous change among African tribes that had never before heard the name of Jesus. Many of these tribes now have strongly established local churches.
Karl and his wife Jennifer are founders of Joshua Campaign International, a pioneer mission and evangelism movement that reaches hundreds of thousands each year and have seen more than 3 million people respond to the Gospel. In their crusades they have seen crowds over 300,000 in a single service. Thousands of churches have been planted as they call for a Gospel army of believers to join the great “assignment”. Millions in Africa, Asia and the Middle East have been impacted by the work of Joshua Campaign. The “assignment” is now leading Karl, Jennifer and their team into new, unconquered territories around the world.
Karl formed Joshua Campaign to reach more people with the Gospel through crusades and at the same time challenge the Christians to finish the great assignment. Millions of people in the North-East region of Africa have been impacted by the work of Joshua Campaign.
Our purpose: To provide the basic right of every born person to at least once hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make a decision.
Our mission: To call for and become a Joshua generation that will rise up and campaign until the “assignment” is finished.
Our rationale: “This gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come” ()
The church, given many commandments and instructions in the word of God, recognizes that the only assignment given to it is to make disciples of all nations. According to God’s word, Jesus Christ will not return until the gospel is preached to all the world as a witness to all nations (). Every nation, tribe, people and language will be represented in the blood-washed church of Jesus Christ ( ).
Statement of Faith
We believe the BIBLE is the inspired, infallible and authoritative written word of God, given for the purpose of directing man to salvation.
We believe there is ONE GOD, eternally existent in three persons; (1) God the Father, (2) God the Son, (3) God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that GOD THE FATHER is God himself, creator of the universe.
We believe that GOD THE SON is the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right Hand of the Father and His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.
We believe that GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT is God indwelling. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ during this age, convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, guide, instruct, empower, and equip the believer for godly living and service.
We believe that JESUS, (God the Son) is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him.
We believe that SALVATION is the gift of God through the grace and faith of Jesus Christ. There is no other Name except that of Jesus Christ by which men shall be saved. By turning from sin to repentance, man is cleansed from sin through the precious blood of Jesus and born again into eternal life by regeneration of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the REDEEMED WORK of Christ on the cross provides healing for the body in response to believing prayer.
We believe in RESURRECTION of both the saved and the lost; the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
We believe THE CHURCH is the Body and Bride of Jesus Christ; whose task is to take the Gospel to all men in all nations, and to make disciples of them.
We believe in the PRIESTHOOD of every believer and the unique relationship to the father through Jesus Christ. As His children, every Christian has immediate access to the throne of Grace and the ability to manifest the power of the Lord Jesus Christ in ministry.
We believe in the UNITY of believers. Joshua Campaign Ministries holds these truths precious and dear. Christians have always had diversity in their theology and will continue to do so until the great return of the Master Teacher Himself.
In the meantime, we want to be one part of the great body of Christ and an instrument in reaching the many people that die daily; eternally lost without the redeeming message of Jesus Christ. What we believe may divide us, but in whom we believe should unite us.
