WHY WE GO!
We go because Jesus' last command to the Church in Matthew 28:19 was to "GO and make disciples of all nations" (ethne or people groups). And . . . because He promised to go with us!
We GO because mission is the very heartbeat of our Father. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son . . . (John 3:16). Jesus came to earth as the first missionary! We joyfully follow His example to leave our culture so that more will come to know Him. We will "win for the Lamb that was slain the reward of His suffering, the souls of men." (Moravian Anthem)
We GO because "Why should anyone hear the gospel twice before everyone has heard it once?" (Oswald J. Smith)
And, did you ever notice that there's a GO in GOd? Pray about joining us for a short-term mission trip this year!
