Project: Theological Resources for Asia

  • Post category:Asia / Projects

Project ID: AM0003-62013

Lutheran pastors, church leaders, and laity in Asia desire to know, teach and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To do this, they need resources such as evangelistic tracts, seminary materials, videos, audio recordings, and online texts (including e-books) in their local languages. These projects provide publications that share the Gospel of salvation—that for the sake of Christ, by grace, through faith, we are forgiven children of God. But so many Christians in Asia are not clear about why and how they are saved and are even uncertain if they will go to heaven or not. Lutheran publications, which clearly articulate God’s Word and give comfort to doubting consciences, are far too few and are sorely needed in local languages. With the proper tools, the people of God can promote the truth of God’s Word and combat false teaching. Each partner church body should have access to primary texts in their local languages. Gifts to this project directly support placing Bible stories, Luther’s Small Catechism, the Book of Concord, Luther’s Works, video, audio, and teachable texts into the hands and ears of church partners around the Asia region. These publications help Lutherans in Asia share Jesus Christ and preserve the faith for generations to come.
