What is the 318 Movement?
It is individuals that have come together to give $1000 in a year to GCD to facilitate the different ministries of the college in advancing the Kingdom of God through equipping active Christian leaders. This is similar to the way that Abraham gathered 318 people raised in his own household to defeat the Kings who had taken Abraham’s family and others hostage. The enemy has taken many people and peoples hostage by blinding their eyes to the gospel. Our goal is to come together, to partner together to use the resources God has given us in talent, finances and giftings as a household to raise up leaders to take back what the enemy has stolen in that he has blinded so many to the gospel. The reason we do this is very simple. To quote Count Zinzendorf, “That the Lamb would receive the reward of His Suffering.” The reward of His suffering is you and I and the others we gather through the gospel and all others who know the Lord standing around the throne to worship Him and to have deep fellowship with Him for eternity. The reward of His suffering is that He would have fellowship with us and multitudes of others forever in eternity. This is the vision of the Lord and we participate in that vision as we equip and send people into Fayetteville and to the ends of the earth to bring light to those who have been blinded by the god of this world.
