The Spiritual Need in Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea (PNG) encompasses the eastern half of New Guinea and its offshore islands. It is a country of immense cultural and biological diversity, known for beaches and coral reefs, volcanoes and dense rainforest. It is home to many traditional tribal villages and more than 800 different people groups, many with their own languages.

With a population of nearly seven million, many Papua New Guineans consider themselves to be Christians. This often means they follow a religion that is a mixture of Western and Eastern influences, including Christian beliefs, animistic rituals, and spirit worship. For many, knowledge of Jesus Christ as the only true savior is still missing or misunderstood.

Positive response to the gospel continues to encourage ABWE missionaries to intensify efforts in tribal outreach and disciple making in Papua New Guinea. Evangelism among high school and college students is an especially fruitful ministry.

ABWE in Papua New Guinea

ABWE believes that by offering theological education and training to faithful men and women who can teach others, we can reach PNG for Christ.

The team is based in Goroka, in the Eastern Highlands, where Goroka Baptist Bible College (GBBC) exists to train Papua New Guineans in methods for reaching their communities with the gospel. For 40 years, God has enabled GBBC to train and send out over 400 men and women for gospel ministry. Many have now served the Lord for more than 20 or 30 years in every province in PNG. Over 100 churches have GBBC alumni serving as pastors and in other ministries within their churches.

We are looking for teammates with a passion for accounting, medical ministry, evangelism, and tribal outreach to join us in missions in Papua New Guinea.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for an end to magic-related tribal warfare, vengeful killings, and violence.
  • Please pray for the continued work of Bible translation in Papua New Guinea and throughout the Pacific region.
  • Pray for the unity of the Spirit in isolated and diverse church communities.


We'd love to talk with you about how God is leading you.
