The Gospel to Every Nation in Our Lifetime? Jesus said it! And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations…and then...shall the end come (Matthew 24:14). Jesus told us that the Gospel would be preached in every nation before He returns. He did not say that every person would hear, but that every nation would have access. According to the United Nations, there are about 193–195 independent sovereign nations on the earth. If you count regions connected with mainline nations, there are approximately 216 to 220. For example, England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland (northern) are historically separate distinct nations but today are combined together into what is called the United Kingdom or UK. Missionaries serving through BIMI are resident in or on deputation to over 110 of these nations or regions. 6 • NATIONS
