"Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation" - Mark 16:15
Why Missions? Our call to missions is really about worship and our love for Jesus and the truth of His Gospel. It means we believe Jesus transforms hearts and minds, and it means we desire everyone in the world to experience His love and come to know Him personall as Lord and Savior. Every single one of us is called to be an ambassador for Christ. It means reaching the lost is not a job for a committeee, and in fact not a job at all, but a longing born of the Holy Spirit that should impassion the entire body of believers. Our mission field is here, our mission field is global, and Christ's Gospel should be continually shaping the way each of us lives, works and serves.
"His authority on earth allows us to dare to go to all the nations. His authority in heaven gives us our only hope of success. And His presence with us gives us no other choice." -John Stott
