Whereas we recognize that God hascalled us to “go into all the world and  preach the gospel”, and Whereas we know that our primary  sphere of influence and place of first responsibility is Andhra Pradesh, and Whereas we know that the church as awhole has fallen so very far short of the goal of planting a church within every  people group and language and village so that there is a living community of Christians within walking distance of every person in Andhra Pradesh,We do hereby resolve and commit ourselves both individually and withthe organizations that we represent to:
1. Commit to working together withother Christians in the state by A.
“In honor preferring one another” (Romans 12:10)
“Working together for the truth” (John 3:8)
“Not being self seeking, not beingeasily angered, by not keeping arecord of wrongs... by always protect-ing, always trusting, always hoping,always persevering” (1 Cor. 13:5-6)
2. Honor God by our complete submission to His will as demon- strated by obedience to his word(John 15:13) 3. Be available to His Holy Spirit as“the Spirit of the Lord is upon us to preach good news to the poor... andto proclaim freedom for the prisoners”(Luke 4:18) as is demonstrated by: A.
Planting churches into every community that will demonstrate thereality of the presence and love of  Jesus (John 1:14 and John 17:21)
Demonstrating the power of God to provide healing (holistic whole-ness, salvation) to the individuals and communities that God calls us to serve (I Thess. 5:23).In recognition of this call, we have
 joined our hands and our hearts and do commit our time, talents and resources as demonstrated by our  signatures below,
 January 13, 2001
This declaration was jointly writtenand signed by representatives of twenty different mission organiza-tions that met in January of 2001in Hyderabad specifically to find ways to work together to further the work of church planting withinthe state. The group is meetingagain this October, under the lead-ership of Dr. Victor Choudhrie, Dr. Shalem Raju, and Dr. Tony Dale, tofurther seek the Lord as to how to see a church planted in every vil-lage in Andhra Pradesh (27,000villages) within the next decade.
India is one of many countries where the Lord is currently moving very power-fully through the rapid proliferation of house churches. A number of churchesthat are very involved with House 2 House magazine in central Texas havealready committed some resources to bringing local church leaders togetheracross India for a variety of conferences and training seminars, under theleadership and direction of Dr. Victor Choudhrie from Madhra Pradesh and Dr.Tony Dale. However, significantly more funds could still be used to increasethe number of village leaders that we can assist in bringing to these confer-ences. If any other individuals or churches would like to help support the workof these conferences, please direct any support by check to:
1019 Meredith Drive, Austin, TX 78748.
Donations can also be made through the
web site.Thank you for your involvement in these exciting projects.
