Engaging all of southeast Europe
We are forging a united mission in southeast Europe, drawing on the gifts, ideas and resources from each of the twelve nations of our peninsula: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Turkey, Serbia and Slovenia. We believe we can accomplish more for God’s glory together than we can apart, presenting a picture in our strife-torn region of the oneness in Christ which spans borders, ethnicities and cultures, communicating openly and honestly with each other, thinking the best of each other and praying for and serving one another.
According to the latest data from Joshua Project, (with exception of Romania at 6.3%), all of the countries in southeast Europe have alarmingly small numbers of believers who identify as evangelicals*. Albania – 0.6%, Bosnia & Herzegovina – 0.21%, Bulgaria – 1.98%, Croatia – 0.38%, Greece – 0.49%, Kosovo – 0.21%, Montenegro – 0.26%, N.Macedonia – 0.16%, Serbia – 0.72%, Slovenia – 0.21%, Turkey – 0.04%.
*The Joshua Project identifies evangelicals as those followers of Christ who emphasize:
The Lord Jesus Christ as the sole source of salvation through faith in Him.
Personal faith and conversion with regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
A recognition of the inspired Word of God as the only basis for faith and living.
Commitment to Biblical preaching and evangelism that brings others to faith in Christ.
