A Church for Every People and
the Gospel for Every Person
by the Year 2000
|Countdown to the new Millennium:|
This countdown goes to January 1st, 2001. The new millenium begins at the start of the year 2001, not the year 2000. This is because there is no year 0 (zero). The first year of the first millenium was year 1 (one). The first year of the second millenium was year 1001, and 2001 will be the first year of the third millenium.
The countdown is shown to stir the body of Christ and to show that time till the end of the millenium is running short; shorter than we think. We want to encourage all believers to be involved in reaching the lost, especially those who have not had the opportunity to hear the message of salvation.
The countdown is not meant to imply that the task of having "a church for every people and the gospel for every person" must be or even will be completed by the start of the new millenium. Nor do we mean to imply that this will be the day or the hour of Christ's return.
