Millions of Bibles, tens of millions of dollars and countless volunteers later it’s safe to say those who have continued the vision of Samuel Hill, J. Nicholson and W. Knights, founders of The Gideons have no regrets. Like Road Swap Gospel Templates they continue to provide a silent sentinel for the Gospel of Jesus Christ whenever and however they can. Join us to accomplish digitally many of the same miracles they have accomplished in print. Always with a mutual goal; to provide tools for the Spirit to bring all who would believe to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Soli Deo Gloria.
We could certainly hire staff to screen calls that come in from those who make decisions for Christ or want to know more about the spiritual life and then refer them to local Churches. But, why would we deprive tens of thousands of Christians of the joys of being part of ministering to those new to our faith and at the same time watching the Spirit work among them.
“This is some pretty amazing stuff! Within seconds, with a simple Copy & Paste, an aXiom “Partner” can create a world wide accessible, online evangelism ministry, customized specifically for your Church. Amazing!”
TheaXiomNetwork has been compared to Sunday School materials publishers. We can supply top quality tools but its up to the Church to supply the process, the passion and the prayer to make it work.
“By its very ministry model TheaXiomNetwork encourages Churches to do “the work of the ministry” from within; to train and equip those who share the pews on Sundays, Bible Studies and Children’s Ministries and who are prepared to share their lives with others locally. The Church has responsibility for and control over those personal connections that draw those into your fellowship who complete your ODC (Online Decision Card).”
“There’s probably not a better phrase to describe what aXiom has accomplished. It’s energized solely by the Holy Spirit and implemented by potentially millions of trained and motivated Christians in their local fellowships. 100,000 “Rays of Light” shining into nearly every home, every community and around the world, 24/7/365.”
“If you currently offer your own version of the Gospel to your community and the world as part of your online ministry then we invite you to join the greatest dissemination of the Good News in the history of the Church. If you do not we offer you ours!”
“The world likes to emphasize the differences in our faith. However, if there is anything 100,000 Churches would rally around, support and eagerly condone, surely it would be Gospel of Jesus Christ!”
“What could be a more Biblical goal than tens of thousands of Churches proclaiming the Gospel in loving obedience to The Great Commission? What could be more obvious than incorporating the World “Wild” Web to help accomplish it?”
Something this unique, this dynamic, this relevant has not only never been accomplished in two thousand years of church history, it’s never even been attempted!
“Beware! The irony about TheaXiomNetwork is that it makes it so easy to participate in evangelism, provides motivation to staff and members to be trained and to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit when He brings someone into our spiritual circle. But, while it makes it easy to do it also makes it harder not to!”
aXiom is the in-house source for the local Church to assume responsibility for its own evangelism. Outsourcing the Gospel through missions is changing lives and cultures as history attests. But, local Church folk seldom enjoy or appreciate the joys of being part of the miracle of Salvation. Now, through prayer, training and leaders ownership members can see the Spirit at work as news about those who have trusted Christ via their Church’s Road Swaps page is shared on Sunday mornings. Life changing…
Incredibly democratic. Finally, the Gospel for the first time in history is now available on a worldwide scale, 24/7/365 on tens of thousands of Bible believing Church websites and not only to those who attend a crusade, pick up a tract, visit your Church or know a Christian personally who is willing (and able) to share their faith but to potentially billions! What a game changer!
“The world is spiritually hungry, and we have the tool to satisfy that emptiness by communicating God´s love. Jesus called us to make disciples of all nations. Discipleship means having knowledge of Him. So the question is, What is my reasonable response to the “go” imperative of the Great Commission, given that I have a global communications network readily available to me and very easy to learn. We, the Church in America, have no excuse!”
The Internet Church – the local church isn’t local anymore! Walter P. Wilson
Every evangelical parachurch ministry has a Gospel presentation on their websites and who’s trained staff follows-up with new Believers. Despite their best efforts there are still only a handful of Gospel pages on the “world wild web”. Imagine 100,000 Churches, with the Gospel accessible by Seekers and being used by the Holy Spirit. But now, Road Swaps pages are referring them back to Churches in their community like yours.
“The aXiom Network’s effort is not just about providing the (1) Gospel online, and effective, (2) Biblical follow-up Tools and even about (3) Networking with other Churches on the largest online Church directory in the world. It is about providing tools to help advance the salvific ministry of (4) the Spirit combined with the efforts of 100,000 Churches to expand the Kingdom in a way never before possible in the history of the Church.”
Doesn’t your vision exceed your ability?
Response: Yes, in every way imaginable.
“From this day forward, we will join with that handful of faithful ministries who provide the Gospel online and ask God to multiply that effort a thousand fold or more by providing the Gospel where it can have an even greater impact; namely, 100,000 local fellowships and the thousands of communities where they minister.”
“The aXiom NetworkTM is focused 100% on the local church. aXiom creates a window into their community for pastors and churches to minister through relationships, prayer, community and more to those seeking Salvation. But, it also incentivizes the local congregation to become equipped to do so.”
The Impact? “Changing Hearts, Growing Churches, Transforming the Web!
“The aXiom NetworkTM is not just about linking a customized Gospel presentation to your ministry’s website with a powerful Online Decision Card. It’s equally about relationships, disciple building, communication, personal and spiritual growth and much more.
aXiom is not an end but a means.”
“Does your Church choose not to post the Gospel on your site because “relational evangelism” is de rigueur and any other approach is deemed too confrontational or ineffective. Has that exclusiveness enabled or encouraged your fellowship to fill the pews with new believers? When we study the lives of Jesus, Paul and their disciples we see they didn’t stress one “method” to the exclusion of others. Why should we?”
“There is a limited number of Christians living in our communities today who will migrate from one fellowship to another. Some Churches haven’t seen anyone put their faith in Christ for Salvation through their own ministry in years! Isn’t it time we depend less on migration and more on the miracles of the Holy Spirit to fill our pews? Add the Gospel to your site and humbly wait to see what God does!”
“Scriptures teach that there is no way around the fact that the Gospel will offend many. If your flock isn’t sure how to tell their family, friends, strangers and coworkers now they can just lovingly explain it to them in a nonthreatening way on your Church’s website. What could be more powerful than Paul speaking to them from his own epistle to the Romans.”
“My seminary professor told a story of when he asked a pastor what his church’s strategy was for reaching the Lost. The pastor replied rather sheepishly, “Our strategy is to just pray.” Prof retorted, “Pray? Well, that’s easier than actually doing anything” A splatter of laughter from the class followed but we all took notice.”
“How is it possible that every Scripturally based parachurch organization that we know about, and that’s most, posts the Gospel on their website and yet, based on our research, maybe one in 500 Churches,
the very Body of Christ on earth,
does the same?”
“The aXiom Network has created an entirely new category for ministry; a remarkable and technologically savvy means to appeal to those whom the Spirit wants to confront with the claims of the Savior; beautiful, professional and biblical online tools and supplies that will, or should, become the cornerstone of every local church’s New Growth ministry!”
“This’ll never work!”
“Evidence suggests the American church is becoming less and less relevant to everyday Americans. As a result, churches run the risk of becoming more isolated and insulated from the cares and concerns of those in their communities. Isn’t it time we reengage basic steps; namely, telling them the truth about a God who loves them enough to have provided the Gospel and a Church who will do the same?”
“While the world ‘wild’ web clearly creates endless challenges to evangelism it also creates nearly infinite opportunities for those Churches that both proclaim salvation in Christ alone and are prepared to optimize their online ministries with a biblical and visually appealing Gospel presentation. We can leave the rest to the Church’s intercession and the Spirit’s intervention.”
“Some pundits say the web is best for communications between the pulpit and the pew only; that there’s no viable strategy possible for effective online evangelism. aXiom believes this abandonment of online Gospel opportunities sells short the dynamics of the technology, the willingness of Christians to cooperate and the ability of the Holy Spirit to work beyond our own limited vision for success.”
“The aXiom Network is to the web what the Bible is to a hotel room, a gospel tract is to a restaurant tab or a prayer lifted up for a person you’ve only met casually. You and your Church may never realize this side of heaven the opportunity you gave for a lost soul to fall in love with the Savior.”
“Jesus asked His disciples rhetorically what is the benefit of possessing a light if they keep it hidden under a basket. Today we are challenged with a similar question; namely, what good is the Good News of Salvation in Jesus Christ if we neglect using the most ubiquitously available tool God has provided since the inception of the church?”
“The term ‘aXiom’ in greek means ‘that which is thought fit, a decision, a purpose’. In English, ‘a clear truth, an idea too obvious to debate’. It remains therefore, ‘fitting, purposeful’ and to us, ‘beyond debate’ that every fellowship that honestly believes that evangelism is the keystone to building disciples and fulfilling the Great Commandment and the Great Commission must include the Gospel on its website!”
“A vast Network of evangelistically committed Churches dedicated to online proclamation of the Gospel, we believe, may be the best opportunity in this new century for the entire gospel believing Body of Christ to exercise her God-ordained power to shake the Devil to his core!”
“The aXiom Network has no illusions about the once lost throngs queuing up to the Throne of Grace as a result of our meager efforts. However, we sincerely believe that to do nothing is a truly lost opportunity to be used by the Spirit, that every soul deserves the opportunity to respond to the Spirit’s offer for Eternal Life and that they will be eternally grateful to the local fellowship that made it possible.”
“The aXiom Network: “Changing Hearts, Growing Churches, Transforming the Web” by making the Gospel available online via a national network of thousands of like-minded churches joining together to provide the Spirit with the “tool” to bring millions to the Savior.
Simple in concept, transformative in execution!”
“Imagine the impact of 100,000 churches networked together to provide online resources for the Spirit to utilize in His ministry. Then imagine those saved individuals and their families integrating into the local church. Is there a downside for those without Christ, the Church or the Cause of Christ? Let it begin with universal access to the Gospel!”
“This ambitious endeavor is nothing short of the greatest mobilization of Churches in history who are committed to the principle that the world should have and they should provide online, universal access to the Good News of Jesus Christ”
