The Great Commission
The Mission of our Church is based on the “Great Commission” as recorded in Matthew’s Gospel:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (28:19-20).
Following the command of the “Great Commission,” “The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs.” The missions of our congregation making disciples involves four-fold task:
- Welcoming: We reach out to people, listen to them, accept them, share the gospel in word and deed, invite them into the family of faith and welcome them into the church and welcome them into the family of worshipping and loving community.
- Worshipping: Through worshipping together, praying for one another, studying and learning together, we help each other to discover the purpose of God’s plan of our mission on earth.
- Nurturing: We also nurture our brothers and sisters in the Christian Faith and help them practice Christ’s teaching of discipleship. We are grounded on the teaching of the scripture that the church exists not to be served but to serve. Through nurturing, we prepare ourselves to do the work of love and share his love in action in the community.
- Sending: As loving community of faith, we believe that we are sent into the community to serve those in need. We truly believe that the Holy Spirit empowers and guide us to do these ministries. We also believe that wherever there’s need and suffering, Christ is already at work.
