In some of his final words on Earth, Jesus gave his followers the Great Commission, instructing us to:
“Go and make disciples of all nations [ethne]”
Matthew 28:19 (NIV)
Jesus was not referring to our modern political nations, but the Greek translation, “panta ta ethne,” indicates people groups. In Matthew 24:14, he uses the same language, declaring:
“This gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations [ethne], and then the end will come.”
Matthew 24:14 (ESV)
AIMS exists to get the message of Jesus to those who have no access because we want to fulfill the words of Christ. With the body of Christ working together, all 7,000 unreached people groups can be reached with the gospel making the Great Commission the Great Completion!
