MISSIONS


Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Before we can discover what our particular ministry in Christ is, we must first understand what the Bible means when it speaks of "ministry."  "Ministry" is love in action.  Jesus provided the pattern for Christian ministry--He came, not to receive service, but to give it. WHY? Because He loved the people He served. (see Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 13:1-17).
