Missions: Engaging the World
The third purpose of Christ Community Church is ENGAGING THE WORLD.
Jesus said go.
Matthew 28: 19-20: 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,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you and
behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Therefore, by the Spirit we go, even to the ends of the earth.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon
you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all
Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
By the power of the Holy Spirit given to us through the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are to engage all peoples with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We help to support and send others (3 John 5-8) in manner worthy of the gospel, both locally and globally. We are to live as those sent out by Christ locally at our home, work, school, and play. And we also are to be prepared to personally go or help send others globally to engage the unreached peoples around the world.
