“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8)
“Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'” (Matthew 28:16-20)
The above passages declare the church’s great commission. We believe that missions is at the heart of God and the most important task of the church. God loves us and desires for all people everywhere to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It is the task of the church, our Great Commission, to share God’s love in Jesus Christ near us and far.
