For the purposes of the Thailand National Plan on Evangelism the following definitions where agreed upon by the Thailand Evangelism and Church Planting Committee which is made up leaders from all the church councils in Thailand
A church is a group of 3 or more believers In Jesus who come together on a regular basis to worship God and learn more about what is taught from the Bible. (cell groups of a parent church are not included)
A member (or Christian) is a member of one of these churches. The membership count is provided by the local pastor or from the central denomination. The denomination or local church decides on the definition of a member
In Mark 1:38 Jesus says “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.”
As Jesus commands in the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19 isto make disciples of all nations - the Greek word is "ethne" or "Gentiles" *
Consistent with this Jesus in Mark 16:15
commands “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation." (i.e. everyone)
The best way to do this is by using Jesus' example - go to every village. Hence these statistics shows the number of unreached villages and people.
