We desire to be active participants in God’s great mission to restore and transform the world through witness and action by the power of the Holy Spirit so that all would come to know Jesus, follow Him, and grow in Him to maturity (Matt 28:18-20, Col 1:28)
The pursuit of that vision compels us to uphold these four commitments:
- Congregational involvement: Leading the congregation to engage in God’s mission to all peoples through corporate and individual prayer, education, financial support and active service in local and global mission and outreach. (Acts 1:8-14, 2 Cor 1:8-11, Col 1:28, 1 Cor 9:14, Php 4:15-18, Jam 2:26).
- Focused Evangelism: Sending God’s servants to people groups where there is no indigenous community of believing Christians, with the goal of sharing the gospel and planting a local church (Rom 10:14-17, Rom 15:20-21) and mobilizing gifted evangelists to be witnesses of the gospel to people who misunderstand the truth of Jesus, even though they have access to the gospel and a local church (Eph 4:11-13, Luke 15:4).
- Discipleship and Training: Supporting mature believers to use their experience to disciple and provide Biblical training to others around the world (2 Cor 3:2-4, Eph 4:15-16, 1 Pet 4: 10-11, Matt 28:18-20).
- Humanitarian Aid and Service: Supporting professionals and trained workers to share the love of Jesus Christ through restoration and social justice, humanitarian aid and service. (Jam 1:27, Luke 4:17-20, Luke 10:30-37, Mic 6:8).
