What is our mission?
A “mission” is something that we are sent to do by someone in authority. Our mission begins with God’s mission.
- God the Father sent his Son Jesus to become a man, to live a life of perfect obedience, and to take the punishment that we deserve in our place. The purpose of Jesus’ life was to die, so that he could please and glorify his Father. Because Jesus did this, God raised him from the dead. God now sends his Holy Spirit to carry on Jesus’ work. (John 3:34, John 4:34, Philippians 2:5-11
- God sends us to make more learners of Christ, by telling all people the good news that Jesus died and rose again so that they can be forgiven. Our purpose is to please God by telling people about Jesus (Matthew 28:16-20, Luke 24:46-49, John 20:19-23, Colossians 1:24-29)
