About Global Hope India

  1. Go to India. Expand Heaven (Rev 7:9-12).

Global Hope India exists to see Indian Nationals absent to the gospel transformed into ambassadors for the gospel.

For over 20 years we have been watching God radically transform thousands of Americans & Indian Nationals through missions. We’ve taken nearly 1,000 Americans on short-term mission trips to India. We work with 12 long-term indigenous church planting partners located in North, South, East, & West mainland India as well as Northeast India. We empower The Church in India to make Christ known through leadership, child, & village development projects. Global Hope India is a federally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Morrisville, North Carolina. All gifts are tax-deductible.

The Church in India celebrates...

  1. We are missionaries. It’s about being sent out by God for the purposes of God to the glory of God.
  2. We love India. It’s about Jesus’ love for every nation, tribe, and tongue absent to the gospel.
  3. We facilitate short-term mission trips to India. It’s about our radical response for the love & grace we’ve received.
  4. We empower The Church to fulfill the Great Commission. It’s about Jesus’ love for His bride the big C Church.
  5. We minimize distractions. It’s about freeing you to focus on the mission. 
  6. We stand on God’s Word. It’s about His Word being for all people and us hearing & obeying the voice of God.
  7. We make prayer the work. It’s about salvation belonging to God and him doing the work in and through us.
  8. We honor the Holy Spirit. It’s about experiencing God & joining Him in His work.
  9. We live generously. It’s about worship and providing an attractive witness of the gospel.

Today, India is 72% Hindu, 23% Muslim, 3% Christian and 2% other faiths. We believe God can take this country known for its persecution of Christians and radically transform India to be one of the largest church planters in our day.

We believe God can transform a Saul into a Paul! (Acts 9) Therefore we are on a mission to see God transform India from being unreached by the Gospel to being reached by the Gospel. But, not just reached! We believe God can transform India from receiving missionaries to sending missionaries! Our vision is for God to transform India from being a people known for their poverty to a Church known for its generosity.

With 1.3 billion people, India represents one of the largest, neediest, and most unreached countries in the world.  (Please check out our: Why India? page which includes information from Operation World.

In 1972, in his only crusade ever in India, Dr. Billy Graham said, “As India goes all of Asia will go with her.” In essence, he was saying if we can make Christ known among the 1.3 billion people of India they will help us to make Christ known among the 4.6 billion people in Asia. Not only does that cover the entire 10/40 window, but that is 2/3’s of the earth’s total population!

EVERYTHING we do is through the local church! Jesus said, “I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18) We believe history proves the most effective means of evangelism is the starting of new churches; therefore, we empower The Church in India to train more healthy church-planting pastors that will start more healthy churches. 

We help The Church be on earth as it is in heaven. In Revelation 7:9-12, we see the Church in heaven filled with people from every nation, tongue, and tribe gathered around the throne worshipping Jesus.

Won’t you join us in living the dream?

  1. Pray for Believers (Americans & Indians) to receive & share Christ
  2. Give to God’s work through GHI
  3. Go and serve the Church in India
  4. Resources for radical transformation.

PRAY:

Salvation and transformation are God’s work. Our work is to pray. We empower you to engage in God’s work by praying very specifically for the people of India. Everyone wants to make a difference in the world. Changing the World is a daunting task, but when we pray & obey God can change our world forever.

GIVE:

We empower you to engage by giving generously and sacrificially to God’s work through GHI. God uses every gift to GHI so that Americans and Indian Nationals are radically transformed by & for The Gospel. Over 85% of every dollar given directly benefits our programs here in the USA and India.

GO:

We believe one of the most radical ways for us to engage in God’s mission is to get on a plane and go to India. Few things are more endearing to any International living in the USA than the words, “I’ve been there.” We empower you to go and share the love and grace you’ve been shown. 

RESOURCES:

We empower church staffs and volunteers with an identifiable and measurable strategy for reaching the internationals in their community. When our churches reach foreign-born internationals, they will reach other foreign-born nationals. Now that is truly changing the world!

  1. Leadership Development: We equip church planters, pastors, worship leaders, church staff & core leaders with biblical truth & practical resources.
  2. Child Development: We empower the local church as they make Christ known among children in schools, orphan homes, and local communities.
  3. Village Development: We empower local churches in India with clean water projects, hygiene kits, business development projects, and other practical resources.

During our founder’s first trip to India in 1998, God planted part of his heart in India. (Click here to Meet Pastor Kevin.) He returned three years later with his 11-year-old son and again three years after that with his 11-year-old daughter.

In 2003, GHI incorporated as a 501 C 3 nonprofit organization for the sole purpose of having a bank account and ability to offer donors a tax-deductible receipt.

This hobby of taking teams on mission trips to India grew from one team a year, to two teams per year and then three. In October 2010, while Pastor Kevin was speaking to a group of gospel workers in Hyderabad, India; God broke his heart for the pastors of India and called him to focus full-time on empowering The Church as they make Christ known among the people of India.

Today, thousands of Americans and Indians have been radically transformed through this mission, and millions of dollars have been collected for the Lord’s work through Global Hope India.

  • We believe in God the Father, Creator of everything, who loves the world he created and sent his only Son to be our Savior.
  • We believe that God the Son is Jesus of Nazareth, the Savior sent by God, Israel’s Messiah, born of a virgin, fully man and fully God.
  • We believe that God the Holy Spirit quickens us from death to life, indwells all those who receive Jesus Christ by faith as Lord and Savior and continuously conforms believers to the image of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that God created all men in his image, to be in perfect fellowship with him, but that this fellowship was broken by sin. Subsequently, all men are born sinners and are in need of salvation. Our relationship with God can only be restored through repentance of sin and belief in Jesus Christ for salvation.
  • We believe the death of Jesus Christ on the cross is sufficient in itself to make atonement for the sin of the world – an atonement available to all who repent of their sins and believe in him alone for forgiveness and salvation.
  • We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and the third day he bodily arose from the dead guaranteeing the bodily resurrection of all those who have received eternal life through faith in him.
  • We believe salvation from judgment, forgiveness of sin and eternal life are free gifts of God’s grace and cannot be earned, deserved, inherited or bought.
  • We believe only those who believe in Jesus Christ and receive him into their inner being will escape eternal judgment and be accepted into heaven.
  • We believe in the imminent, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth to reign in righteousness and justice.
  • We believe the true church is not an organization, but the body of Christ made up of those who have personally trusted Jesus Christ as Savior and publicly confessed him as Lord.
  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Spirit of God, without error and thus the supreme and final authority for faith and practice.
  • We believe that daily Bible reading and prayer are as necessary for the sustenance of spiritual life as food and water are necessary for physical life.
  • We believe that all believers are commanded to be witnesses for Christ, sharing the Gospel to the whole world.
