Our Mission & Vision
The mission of Rooftop Missions is to “open closed countries with the gospel.” Over the past few decades the term “closed country” has become a common phrase among Christian circles. It’s intent is to categorize a certain country that has become difficult to reach with the gospel due to hostile governments, adverse political situations, or perhaps even overwhelming religious opposition. And while these points may be valid in terms of the inherent difficulty associated in trying to reach these countries it is imperative that a Biblical approach provide the final perspective.
You will not find any verse in Scripture making a case for Christians not reaching a certain group of people. But, exactly the opposite is true! Time and time again God appeals to the lost to be saved regardless of race, class, or income (ie – John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13; 2 Pet 3:9; and many others). And yet Jesus said five times for believers to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
So if the Bible is true and God’s heartbeat truly is “that all the earth may know that there is a God” (2 Sam 17:46) then is there really such a thing as a “closed country”? We could even take it a step further and ask the question, “Why has 40% of the world still not heard even one time the message of the gospel?” Or why are 99.9995% of missionaries going to work among the 44.3% of the world population that already has access to the gospel?

Not possible to reach the world? Too many barriers to reach the unreached? Closed country? Let the Bible speak for itself:
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…” Romans 1:16

While we are confident that God has equipped us to do the work He has called us to do, we are praying for more believers with vision to join our team. If you have a heart for God and a desire to do something different to reach people for Christ then seriously pray and consider getting on board.
Rooftop Missions is NOT a mission board but is a team of like-minded believers who simply desire to advance the Gospel.
As Hudson Taylor once said, “It will not do to say that you have no special call to go to China. With these facts before you, and with the command of the Lord Jesus to go and preach the gospel to every creature, you need rather to ascertain whether you have a special call to stay at home.”
