Why we support missions:

For over 15 years every March, our church has celebrated our partnership with our missionaries with a Missions Sunday.  During and after Missions Sunday we receive Faith Promise commitments as our way of financially supporting our missionaries.  If you have ever wondered why, here are a few reasons.

The early church is our example

It was a direct command from Jesus for the early church to carry the good news to other places. New churches were established in the region and beyond by these early believers.

Missionaries Work On Behalf Of US as Their Supporters
In chapter four of the book of Acts, Paul told the church that he knew that it was God who took care of him. Yet, God used the people in Philippi to be the agents of that provision. Because of the gifts of the Philippian believers, Paul said that God would put the fruit of his own ministry to the account of the church in Philippi.

People Need To Hear The Gospel

God is not willing that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). His plan is that those who already know the Gospel share it with those around them. God could have chosen any means to propagate the story of redemption; however, He chose current believers to be the ones who shared Christ’s love with others.

Jesus Requested Prayer For The Laborers

Jesus said that we should pray that the laborers would step up to the task and accept the challenge of carrying the Gospel to the people.

We Are Commanded To Go

Some of the last words of Christ before He ascended to heaven was that we should go and carry His Word to the world. In Matthew 28:19 and 20 Jesus said to go into the whole world with the Gospel, teach the hearers and baptize believers.

Who Will Go? Who Will Send?

Paul wrote in Romans 10 that preachers were needed to carry the Gospel. Who will go to preach? Then Paul follows up the question of “who will preach” by asking “who will send them?” The church and current believers have the responsibility to support those who are going into the world with the precious Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Part

What will your part in missions be? We should all be sharing the Gospel with those around us. But, does God want you to be more involved by committing to full-time ministry? Even if you are not called to be a missionary on a foreign field, you can help the cause of missions by supporting missions through our church. This support can come by way of prayer, finances, or time and labor for the work of the ministry.
