AT THE CORE OF OUR IDENTITY AS THE CHURCH is our call to proclaim and demonstrate God’s glory to the world: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9) This call saturates the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Though our church is undeniably called to engage in God’s global mission, Scripture does not specify how. Should we host a food pantry or support an orphanage? Should we send missionaries to Sudan or Siberia? Decisions like these must be made prayerfully within a well-defined set of biblical and strategic parameters. The more we learn about missions, both individually and corporately, the wiser and better our missions investments will be.
