Christ For All Nations (CfaN) was founded in 1974 by Reinhard Bonnke. Crusades, which began in Africa, are currently held all over the world. In the industrialized world, the literature outreach known as 'From Minus to Plus' has reached into 95 million homes in twelve different countries with tens of thousands of churches receiving converts from the resulting enquirers. The countries touched in this way are the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Hong Kong, Canada and the United States of America. This vision still continues actively at this present time in Finland, Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

A little-known arm of this ministry is CfaN's literature work. Reinhard Bonnke has written a number of books and booklets. At present, a total of over 103 million books have been translated into 123 languages and dialects, and are being printed in 42 different countries.

Statement of faith

Christ For All Nations uses the following to express its Statement of Faith:

THE BIBLE is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.
There is ONE GOD, eternally existent in three Persons: God the Father God the Son God the Holy Spirit In the Deity of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right Hand of the Father, His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.
In the BLESSED HOPE - the rapture of the Church at Christ's second coming.
The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
Regeneration by the HOLY SPIRIT is essential for personal salvation.
The redemptive work of Christ on THE CROSS provides healing for the body in response to believing prayer.
The BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it, with the evidence of "speaking in tongues".
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a HOLY LIFE.
In the RESURRECTION of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.

In 1974 the evangelistic organization that is today still known as 'Christ for all Nations' was born. The preaching of the Word began to produce a harvest of souls and in addition to this, people were being healed of all kinds of diseases.
In obedience to a word from the Lord, Reinhard Bonnke led his fledgling team to the national stadium of the country of Botswana in the city of Gaberones, to hold a city-wide Gospel Crusade. Although he had never preached in a stadium before, he trusted God for a miracle.
With only one small fellowship co-operating, the meetings began and Reinhard's disappointment can be imagined when only one hundred people came to the first meeting. He nevertheless preached as if the place were full and to his complete amazement, after only a few minutes, a man in the congregation jumped to his feet and disrupted the proceedings by shouting out, " I've just been healed!" This was repeated five times over as others shouted out the same thing, resulting in an outburst of joyous praise.
The news that God was doing miracles in the stadium soon spread across the city and by the final meeting, for the first time in his short ministry, Reinhard preached to a packed stadium. Thousands streamed forward for forgiveness of their sins, hundreds were healed and thousands more were baptized in the Holy Spirit - and this was just the beginning. On a return visit to the country of Botswana twelve years later, the leader of a large denomination reported that eighty percent of his current pastors were converts from that first crusade in Gaberones.
Events moved rapidly after this as the Yellow Tent seating ten thousand people was built and the results of the ministry began to grow.
Before long the need for a larger tent was crystallized into action by a word from the Lord about the biggest tent of all, one that would seat thirty-four thousand people. Large enough to completely cover three football fields, with masts that rose as high as a six-storey building.
It was only a matter of two years though, before even this huge canopy could no longer contain the masses that were streaming to the Gospel Crusades.
Open-air crusades became the order of the day as hundreds of thousands flocked to every meeting. In one particular crusade held in Kaduna, Nigeria, 500,000 people came to a single meeting with a total of over one and a half million attending the six days of services. The ministry team moved from East Africa to West Africa and back again as the two, now separate, technical and support teams, organized events on opposite sides of the continent of Africa. In a period of twelve consecutive months during this period, in Africa alone Reinhard Bonnke preached face to face to eight million people, and of that vast number, over two million responded to the call of salvation and were ushered into the church follow-up program.

Program accomplishments

2010 During the last ten years, over sixty-five million recorded decisions have been made for Christ and incorporated into local churches.
