Mission & Evangelism Ministry

As a church we are called to go and make disciples of all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19) according to the Great Commission that Jesus gave before He was ascended to the Heaven. We believe that this commandment is in the

heart of God and our God is the God of mission, being the missionary Himself who came from Heaven to save mankind. The mission that Jesus had while on earth is now our mission since we are the Body of Christ. What he did in his physical body, we are to continue as his spiritual body - the church. What is that mission? Introducing people to God! The Bible says "... Christ changed us from enemies into his friends and gave us the task of making others his friends also."

Evangelism is sharing the good news of Jesus Christ (i.e. the gospel). As with all other aspects of Christian ministry, evangelism should be done in the power and under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Because evangelism is an expression of God's love for those who don't have a relationship with him we have to trust him to bring about the results we seek.
