Hands-On Missions

Acts 1:8    ...power to be my witnesses...to the ends of the earth.

Our vision is to glorify God by fully loving Him and loving others. How do we plan to accomplish our vision? One way is by communicating the good news of Christ to our community through evangelism. This Missions Commission ministers in our church through the promotion, development, and communication of missions to the entire church family of any endeavor outside our local congregation to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ through evangelism, discipleship, and assisting cross-culturally with church planting and development.

The Scriptural Basis of Missions

  • PRAY for laborers as commanded by Christ - Luke 10:2
  • GIVE to support mission activities - Philippians 3:18-19
  • SEND as exemplified by the Church of Antioch - Acts 13:2-3
  • GO to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ - Matthew 28:18-20

Do you have a heart for missions?

The mission commission is looking for a few people with a heart for missions. Meetings are once a month. Our challenge is to keep the congregation informed about the missionaries supported by our church. We are looking for help with prayer, communications, and a future missions conference. If you are interested, e-mail Julie Lingo.
