"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8 (NIV)
Engagement in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
We aspire to pursue God’s mission globally by expanding our hearts in love and compassion for the world. We see the mission aspect of our discipleship on display when we pursue God’s mission locally by sharing the good news of Jesus with those who do not yet follow Jesus. We see the compassion aspect of our discipleship on display when we relieve human suffering in order to display the justice, mercy and soul-satisfying beauty of God. We are called to develop missionaries to go and serve in God’s mission around the world by effectively sending and supporting members in mission. In mission and service to others, spiritual growth takes place and Christian character is formed. Christian discipleship takes place in mission.
