IET operates on the principle of spiritual multiplication. Each missionary trained by IET is required to plant a church, disciple, and shepherd this church until a mature body of believers is established. Then they must train a few members of that church for church-planting work. The original missionary then repeats the process in another unreached village. Based on previous experience, we estimate that at least 40 pioneer churches will be planted for each trained church planter.
Indian Evangelical Team’s primary call fulfills the Great Commission by planting healthy, reproducing churches among the unreached peoples and by raising up indigenous leaders who eventually lead church planting movements in each cultural or geographical group.
