Becoming a partner

Midlands Gospel Partnership is primarily a partnership of churches. Partnership is open to any church in the Midlands which subscribes to MGP’s Doctrinal basis and shares MGP’s convictions about the shape of gospel ministry:

The means of gospel ministry is the prayerful teaching of the Bible.

It is as the Bible is taught in the power of the Spirit that God’s voice is heard.

The heart of gospel ministry is the proclamation of Christ crucified.

The message of the cross is God’s way of saving people from his coming wrath.

The focus for gospel ministry is the local church.

It is primarily through the local church that unbelievers are brought to faith in Christ and believers are built up in him.

MGP partner organisations are other Christian organisations that wish to work in partnership with MGP.  Partner organisations subscribe to our Doctrinal basis and share our convictions about the shape of gospel ministry (see above).  Any Christian group interested in becoming a MGP partner organisation should contact us: .

Our partner organisations are:

AWM-Pioneers  – sharing the good news with unreached Muslims of the Arab world https://www.awm-pioneers.org/

Living Out  – helping Christian brothers and sisters who experience same-sex attraction stay faithful to Biblical teaching on sexual ethics and flourish at the same time; helping the Christian Church understand how they can better help those who experience same-sex attraction to flourish; helping the wider world hear and understand that there is more than just one viable script for those who are same-sex attracted. http://www.livingout.org/

OM  – working in every region of the world, OM’s aim is to motivate and equip Christians to share God’s love, and to strengthen and plant churches especially in areas where Christ’s love is least known.

It is also possible for individuals who do not belong to a MGP partner church to become individual partners. Requirements for individual partnership are the same as for church partnership. Churches or individuals interested in partnership please contact .
