Taking the Gospel to the World
The Great Commission
We strive to practice our responsibility as Christians to proclaim the grace of God in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are committed to spreading this Good News, personally, corporately, locally, and globally.
The church is to be a lighthouse, actively and continually witnessing to the saving grace of Jesus Christ by shining the light of the gospel in its community and surrounding regions. In an effort to contribute to the proclamation of the gospel in remote regions, missions and missionaries should be supported, but not at the displacement of the local mission field.
The church is charged with the responsibility to carry out the Great Commission (Matt 28:19‐20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46; John 17:18), in personal suffering and service. The book of Acts demonstrates repeatedly the pattern of corporate evangelism; it is portrayed as the heart and soul of the New Testament church. The command, responsibility, expectation, and commissioning are not optional to the church or individuals. It is essential “that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem” (Luke 24:47–48).
Of the three priorities of the church, this is the only one that cannot take place in heaven. This is the charter of our mission on earth. God has redeemed and placed people in His church to solemnly testify to the gospel of the grace of God in order that He may receive the praise that He deserves and that people from the world may receive His glorious grace through Christ to enjoy Him forever. The church exists to increase God’s glory in the world and evangelism is an essential part of that commission. We adopt the high purpose of our missionary efforts, both near and far, as was stated long ago: “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His sufferings.” Christ suffered on behalf of sinners; they need to know—we are the messengers.
Our purpose, then, is to (1) worship God, (2) grow in our worship of God, and (3) lovingly labor in calling others to become worshippers of God.
