WHAT WE DO
At ReachingtheTribes, our goal is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all the Filipino people. It maybe in churches, on the street or in the jungles. We go where God calls us.
There are no two ways about it. Without Jesus, people are hopelessly lost.
And because lost people matter to God, they matter to us. Whether they live in indigence or opulence, those outside of Christ need good news. They need to know that they can experience new life in Him.
Jesus came to set sin’s captives free from eternal darkness and death. And He calls us to join Him in His mission of evangelism and discipleship. Both involve intentional processes. Evangelism begins as a relationship. It is initiated and cultivated for the purpose of communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ and the new life He offers. This life is available for now and for all eternity to anyone who repents and receives God’s grace. Grace is made possible only through Christ’s sacrificial death and Resurrection.
The process of discipleship is life long and involves the work of God’s Holy Spirit. Its focus is on making Christ Lord in every category of life. Discipleship will result in the carrying out of God’s mission: to bring about the entrance of mankind into the eternal Kingdom that He has prepared for us.
Matthew 28:19-20 “ Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We believe in discipling a new believer
The benefits are:
1) Become closer to Jesus.
No one knows the teacher better than one of his disciples. If you truly want to know Jesus more, there really is no other way but to follow Him. To daily pick up your cross and follow hard after Christ. The words of Scripture will come alive in your life in ways you never dreamed. And the best part, the absolute best part of it all, is that when you draw close to Him, He will draw close to you. He’ll meet you every time. And it starts with a humble, contrite heart.
2) See Him.
Ever wished you could see God more in your life? This is how. When you’re spending time with Him, being the disciple He called you to be, and following Him, you get to see Him. It’s not a formula, please understand. You can’t do this or that and suddenly always be able to see what God is doing in every situation. He will remain mysterious and, at times, still seem absent. However, when you’re being His disciple, you will see Him at work. In your life and in the lives of others. The more you know Him, the more you will recognize His work.
3) Know His Ways.
Spend a lot of time with anyone and you begin to become familiar with the way they are. You recognize patterns in the things they say and do, little tics and personality quirks, and their preferences and views on different subjects. Spend that kind of time with Jesus, and you begin to know His ways. You begin to recognize His mark, so to speak, in the world around you. When you see Him doing the same things again and again in life after life after life, it makes an impression on your mind.
4) Become More Like Him.
As you pick up your cross to follow Him daily, you become more like Him at a depth you can’t reach otherwise. The more you know Him and His ways, and the more you follow Him, the more like Him you become. The Words of Scripture aren’t intended to be only read, but done. You can learn an awful lot about Him by what’s written in His Word, but to truly know Him you also must follow Him.
5) Join His Mission.
A disciple gets to join Jesus in His mission on planet earth. While that mission, like discipleship, is open to all who believe, only a disciple is close enough to fully participate. It is through the act of daily picking up your cross and following Him that you can receive guidance and experience all He has in store for you. Otherwise, you’re standing still and secure, drinking the milk of Salvation instead of feasting on the substance of His life.
Think about a stone sitting on a mountain. As long as it sits there waiting, it can go nowhere, even though the potential for a great journey is already there. However, once it’s nudged out of its secure spot, it begins to move and can be guided by outside forces. The Christian life is similar. We are on the Rock because we have believed. But we’re sitting in our secure spots on the side of the mountain, afraid to step out into discipleship. We are safe and we are secure in Him. But it’s out there, rolling out on the mountainside following Him, where the true mission lies.

Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.
The bible commands us to feed the hungry and give to he poor. God allows us to serve over 10,000 meals per month.
Giving to the poor is one of our favorite things to do. We give away clothes, school supplies, reading glasses and hygiene packs
