WHY WE GO
At the core of missions is Jesus' charge to His disciples to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey all that He commanded (Matthew 28:19–20). Because of this, we believe that involvement in missions is required of all Christians and that God has empowered and equipped all believers to participate in three ways: pray, send, or go.
God desires people from every tribe and nation to know, glorify and worship Him (Revelation 7:9-12). It has been His plan from the beginning that His people be actively involved in reaching the nations (Genesis 12:1-4). Before the very foundation of the world (Ephesians 2:9-10), God intended for believers, both individually and as His Church, to go to every tribe and nation (Acts 1:8).
In some of His last words on earth, Jesus spoke to His followers about a very specific plan for them after His ascension to Heaven. In Acts 1:8, He told them that they would be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Based on this passage, we understand our calling in missions to be focused locally, regionally and internationally.
