How the 7 mountains of cultures were founded?

In 1975, Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham were having Lunch together. They both are founders of one of the largest christian organizations in the world.

Bill Bright is the founder of Campus crusade, and Loren is the founder of Youth with a Mission (YWAM).
As they both were having lunch together, God spoke to both of them to give a message to each other. At the same time frame, God gave a similar message to Francis Schaeffer.

That message was that if we are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society.

The seven mountains of cultures for Advancing God’s Kingdom, “Thy Kingdom Come, thy will be done, as in heaven so on earth”, for transforming cultures, societies, and the nations of the earth with the Kingdom of God.

Here are in general –

Media: Communicating truths and good news.

Government: Reflecting His mercy, kindness and righteous justice. Eg; Abraham Lincoln – Abolition of slavery.

Arts and entertainment: Reflecting His creativity, beauty, majesty. His greatness, and tools for missions. Arts, music, sports, fashion, entertainment, etc.. God gave us arts and entertainments to celebrate and enjoy life, and His creations.

Business: When God give prosperity and blessings, it is not just for ourselves, it is also for Advancing the Kingdom of God, and for the needs of others. Providing for the Advancement of the Kingdom, building churches and giving resources to build the Kingdom of God, supporting missionaries, giving to the needy, etc.

Education: Truth about God, man, creations, and Biblical Worldview that does not contradict the word of God, Godly education.

Religion: For people to worship the true living God, Grace and Mercy, intimate relationship with God, and God is worshipped in Spirit and in truth.

Family: Emotional health and well being. Godly marriage and Godly parenting, children. Families create societies, societies create nations and everything else in this world.

There is one thing we want to add in the end, that “There is no Apostolic without the Advancement of the Kingdom”, and that the whole purpose of this 7 mountains of cultures was to Advance the Kingdom of God on earth.


God Bless You,
