Let the nations be glad is characterized by the following distinctives:
Preaching and Teaching: Our confidence in, and love for His written Word, and the particular calling that the Lord has placed on us at Let the nations be glad, compel us and give us the courage to “not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ” (). “And [Jesus] went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom…” (). “I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word.” ().
Gospel proclamation: We, at Let the nations be glad, desire to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ with passion and clarity so that we may reach as many as possible. Therefore our strategies will be determined by what is most biblically effective in spreading the truth about Jesus Christ via our resources. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” ().
Prayer: We, at Let the nations be glad, desire to make prayer a reality in the visible life of our ministry at all levels. We affirm our deepest confidence in Jesus Christ, and through prayer, acknowledge that we can do nothing apart from Him. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” ().
Humility and Sincerity: We, at Let the nations be glad, seek to be what we preach and teach. We desire our personal lives and organizational structure and policies to give explicit evidence that we treasure Jesus Christ above all things. In disagreements we seek to assume the best of others and ask clarifying questions before making judgments. When we have offended anyone, we will be quick to confess our errors and sins, pursue reconciliation, and make necessary changes. “We are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ” ().
