WHY DO WE DO GLOBAL MISSIONS?

We have been blessed by God through Jesus Christ to be a blessing to the Nations so that all people can worship and glorify the One True God.  We take Jesus’ words seriously when He called us to go into All the world to preach the Gospel (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19-20).  We do Global Missions as Christ’s ambassadors, calling people from every nation back to relationship with God through what Jesus did for us on the cross.  We are flawed and imperfect, yet God in His grace uses us and has given each one of us the privilege and task of reconciling people back to Him (2 Corinthians 5:18-21).
