Welcome to the Albanian Encouragement Project! We are glad you are serving the Lord in
Albania and have a vision for spreading the Good News here. May He be our strength and song
as we join together in His work!
The Albanian Encouragement Project (AEP) was founded in October 1991 by Evangelical
Christian organizations and churches wanting to cooperate together while remaining autonomous
in their individual ministries in Albania. There are several advantages to uniting together:
1) By exchanging information and communicating with one another, duplication in one area and
over-concentration in others can be avoided.
2) Each group benefits from the information discovered by others.
3) Discussion on issues of common concern generates a broader understanding and more
4) As the name "Albanian Encouragement Project" indicates, we are here not only to encourage
Albanians, but also each other.
5) Having a united front before the Albanian government and international agencies, more is
accomplished than if we were all working independently.
6) Sharing in the expenses of a common office for communications can save everyone added
THE HEART OF AEP
We affirm that the church's visible unity in truth is God's purpose. Evangelism also summons us
to unity, because our oneness strengthens our witness, just as our disunity undermines our gospel
of reconciliation. We recognise, however, that organisational unity may take many forms and
does not necessarily forward evangelism. Yet we who share the same biblical faith should be
closely united in fellowship, work and witness. We confess that our testimony has sometimes
been marred by sinful individualism and needless duplication. We pledge ourselves to seek a
deeper unity in truth, worship, holiness and mission. We urge the development of regional and
functional cooperation for the furtherance of the church's mission, for strategic planning, for
mutual encouragement, and for the sharing of resources and experience. (John 17:21, 23; Eph.
4:3, 4; John 13:35; Phil. 1:27; John 17:11-23).
