The G12 vision is focussed on Jesus Christ and His command to the church to 'go and make disciples of all nations.' This is to be accomplished by the preaching and the teaching of the gospel of the Kingdom of God in the power of the Holy Spirit and the training of committed followers of Christ.
Based on Christ's mentoring of twelve disciples and sending them out to disciple others, the G12 vision is a vision of formation and multiplication. G12 stands for Government of 12 and represents the lordship of Jesus Christ being established in the life of each of the 12 disciples. Trained disciples then train disciples to train disciples in a continuing process that aims for all people everywhere to learn of Christ's love and His power to transform lives.
G12 is not a denomination it is a vision to bless the body of Christ and extend the Kingdom of God.

Thousands of churches from around the world have adopted the G12 vision as a means of building the church and spreading the gospel. From small churches in starting out in the vision to churches now numbering in the 100,000s. G12 has equipped churches of different sizes and denominations to be fruitful and multiply.
