What is Christian Missions?
Christian missions is obeying Christ...After Christ’s death and resurrection, He commanded the disciples to share the Gospel. The Great Commission still applies to Christians, today. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:19-20).
Christian missions is sharing Christ...Jesus made it clear that Christians are to reach out to “all the nations” (Matthew 28:19). Missions, however, is not limited to overseas ministry. Along with faithfully supporting those who go to the unreached (overseas), all Christians have the mission to share Christ with family, friends, coworkers, and the community.
Christian missions is relying on Christ...Sharing the Gospel with humility, boldness, and passion is our Christian mission. But we cannot do it alone. The power and results of sharing the Gospel with others, comes from the Lord. He gives us the wisdom, strength, and desire to witness! "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:20-21).
