ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP) -- God works through His people, the Church. The Bible makes it very clear. The local church is central in God's plan to move the Gospel throughout the world. That's why the evangelism teams at the North American Mission Board (NAMB) are geared to encourage and extend the ministries of the local church. We believe in the continuum of church -- every evangelism effort should be rooted in and flow back into the local church. NAMB's role becomes clear in the light of this conviction.
