Training & Networking local teams to develop long-term 7-sphere strategic plans to Transform their Nations
ABCs of Nations
Arts and Media
The nations face five main problem areas that the church must address more effectively: sin & spiritual oppression, ignorance & error, corruption & poverty, injustice & tyranny, and disease & disease & division. Progress in addressing each of these are true "signs" of success in Jesus' command to disciple the nations (Mt 28; Mk 16).
Christians must respond to these problems better than it is doing recently. Did you know that increase in churches, prayer and revival alone has never fully transformed any nation since the beginning of Christianity? History shows that lasting change occurs when a deliberate strategy is also implemented to raise up Christian leaders for the most influential institutions or "mountains" of culture.
Christians are starting to return to the historic comprehensive strategy of the Great Commission of Christ to go and "make disciples of nations." Jesus defined how we measure our progress in the mission in four areas defined across the top.
We invite you to explore these pages and then contact us to find out how you can connect with others like you in your area or be the first of the Network in your community.
What we Do:
5 steps that our Transformation teams do in each city:
1. Providing general education of Christians in the 5 signs of the Great Commission Transformation vision
2. Identifying and providing advanced training for 5 signs leaders
3. Connecting trained 5 signs leaders into networked teams
4. Developing and executing long-term strategic 5 signs action plans (including credentials and placement)
5. Developing funding for permanent 5 signs institutions
Our organization is much more focused on developing a deep Scriptural basis for the big mission of “making disciples of the nations” (Matt 28) than many other groups that care about various social concerns. So we always emphasize first in-depth teaching from the Bible on the core purpose and principles and best-practices for the key parts of a nation.
But besides teaching on these things, we then work with leaders in a coaching style that helps them to come together as a united team with a long-term strategic plan that truly will transform their city. Having done this now for 25 years in over 40 countries, we have found from experience that when people develop a long-term plan and unify to work as a team on those goals, then nations have really seen major impact. It may not show up in the next election, but it shows up within several years and certainly in the next generation.
We developed materials in print & video. These transformation tools are available as well as self-assessment tools to help leaders discover where they need to grow and improve.

Christ's Strategy to Disciple Nations
Christ's Strategy to Disciple Nations is a comprehensive look at the Biblical best practices that over history have proven to transform nations for good. Dr. Mark Beliles, Ph.D., draws from his 30 years of studying Christian thought and actions in many nations. He has personally visited over 50 nations as well. His research led him to a startling find: Never has prayer, church growth and revival been enough to significantly transform a nation. He discovered that the missing element is found in Christ's Great Commission to "disciple the nations." When Christians have intentionally focused on not only training leaders for the church itself but also the nation, eventually the culture is changed. The Pilgrims who settled America and the Founding Fathers shared in this commitment and they founded the most transformed nation in history. But today most of it is lost. Business as usual for the modern church is not working. We must return to the historically-proven practices that transforms culture. Following the signs that Christ said would follow them, the book presents 3 major practices for 5 different areas of life. Rich with historical examples, and modern testimonies, the reader comes away not just inspired, but prepared to begin developing a long-term strategic plan for his own community.

Dr. Mark Beliles is a transformation practitioner with an amazing track record of impacting high level leaders and nations! His scholarly theological and historical work combined with his vast experience in the field, enables him to write on this subject like few can. I highly recommend this and all his books!
U.S. Coalition of Apostolic Leaders
Dr. Mark Beliles has been actively servicing Presidents, Prime Ministers, and other Politicians of many countries by providing mentoring, consulting, and holding seminars, etc. He also founded the Providence Foundation and its transnational Biblical Worldview University with many on and off-line training courses. Having seen Pastor Beliles teach in my own church (Hallelujah Community Church, Korea) and contribute to the Transform World Connections, and having cooperated with him for Transform Korea Connections, I strongly endorse his biblical and transformational perspectives to fellow-ministers and Evangelical cultural leaders around the world.
Rev. Dr. Sang-Bok David Kim
Chairman of World Evangelical Alliance
Reformation of the 7 mountains of culture is something that Mark Beliles has been teaching and equipping leaders longer than most. His Global Transformation Network across the USA and in 40 other nations has helped leadership teams to develop comprehensive strategic plans that have had outstanding results in governments, businesses and schools. I highly recommend his books and seminars as one of the best resources for pastors and apostolic leaders who have a vision for reformation.

Wagner Leadership Institute
Mark Beliles had visited and ministered to our churches in Singapore as well as other parts of Asia. He has deep understanding and values of the social-economic and cultural heritage of nations. He brings the biblical perspective of how God had shaped the nations for His purpose and glory. In his messages he stimulate the audience to reflect on the spiritual dimension as we face up the challenge of transformation of our society. His wide knowledge of the historical and cultural roots in the development of nations helps us to play our part to transform our society. I whole-heartedly commend him to you.

We strongly promote and share the life-changing books and teachings of Mark Beliles at our conferences so that Christians may obtain the knowledge of their Christian heritage and experience the transforming effect of it in their lives and their nation.

When social action involving Christians is a subject which is disputed and distorted almost daily in the media, I thank God for Mark Beliles and his work in teaching this generation to value and to heed the Christian principles upon which our beloved country was established and which can transform all nations.
