Gospel Spreading


It has been rightly stated that missions exist because worship doesn’t. When Christ returns, missions will cease to exist. The church is called to live to make the gospel of the glory of Christ known and seen, taking the gospel to the nations (2 Cor. 2:14-17; 4:1-18). Jesus has commanded each of us to make disciples of every nation, so every member of the church should strive to live on mission and engage their spheres of influence with the gospel (Matt. 28:18-20). Evangelism should not be seen as an event the church participated in, but part of the very culture of the church.

Local and world missions should be an emphasis for the church, with each having at its aim the increasing worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The church should also view every gathering as an opportunity for the lost to be found and be reconciled to God, with each member ready to share with anyone who may not know Christ. Gospel fluency should be a driving goal of each ministry, so the gospel is deeply understood by each member of the church, and they always have an answer for the hope they have (1 Pet. 3:15). Every member should also be encouraged to understand how they can live on mission in their workplace, neighborhood, and friend circles.
