Do you have a heart for reaching men, women and children who live in places where the Gospel is not heard? According to the International Mission Board, 4,992 people groups live in "The Last Frontier" - the part of the world with little or no access to the Gospel. That means that 1.6 billion people have virtually no chance of hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ!
By far the single most significant speech in human history – the final earthly words spoken by Jesus – includes the most compact expression of the Christian mission ever spoken. Its powerful declaration continues to reverberate through the corridors of time like peals of rolling thunder:
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20
The Great Commission sets the parameters of our service to Him. It's a call for every member of God's family. And it is GREAT. We will have other life tasks, but our primary work is to fulfill the Great Commission – in our home, in our personal life, in our neighborhood, in our workplace, in our community ... and beyond. We have been entrusted to share the Good News of Christ! This is a privilege each of us shares, as well as a responsibility we must take personally.
We're excited about the missions and evangelism ministries we have in place to share the love of Christ through people just like you – people who want to make an eternal difference with their lives. The opportunities to serve are limitless! We encourage you to prayerfully consider how God can use you.
