Our Vision and Prayer for the Border and the Baja
Our vision is to see the Lord work in such a way that the bi-national city of San Diego – Tijuana and Baja California will be renewed, and that the border will be revived. This will take place as like minded ministries serve together to so fill the border and the Baja with gospel-centered churches, so that the whole region is transformed spiritually, socially and culturally.The Northwestern Mexico Baja team will work in partnership with other like minded ministries to plant a network of churches among Hispanics in this great bi-national border city, the Baja and beyond!
In this video Dave shares the vision for what we are praying that God will do on the Border.
As the life giving gospel is proclaimed, we will see personal, spiritual, social and cultural transformation. New Hispanic churches will be established on both sides of the border and throughout Baja California. Out of the overflow of the gospel churches and ministries for all the nations represented in the area will be started and they will flourish.
These churches will have a healing influence. As Isaiah 61:1-3 proclaims, the good news will be proclaimed to the poor, the brokenhearted will be healed, those in captivity will receive liberty and those in prison will be set free. The devastated city will be rebuilt and restored.
The border culture and the Baja will be transformed and have a healing ripple effect along the rest of the border, to other Hispanic communities in the US, and affect Mexico and the world.
The San Diego – Tijuana Border & the Baja
San Diego – Tijuana represents the largest binational city in the world with over 5 million people. Over 40 million people cross the SD-TJ border each year, making it the most land crossed border crossing in the world. For the U.S. it is a gateway to Mexico. Tijuana is the second most visited city in the western hemisphere. New York City ranks first. More than 50% of the population in San Diego are Latino.
This region really is a tale of two cities. On the one hand, there is the beauty, wonderful climate, rich food and culture that the region promises. On the other, there is poverty, drug addiction, human trafficking, gang violence and oppression among other social evils. The light of Christ has yet to fully grip and transform these cities like we know it can.
We are now reaching other key cities in Baja California: Ensenada, La Paz and Los Cabos. We hope to expand to Mexicali which is the capital of Baja California. The Lord is opening many exciting doors! Come join us on this adventure.
