A popular children’s show has two pug puppies singing “Going on a mission, going on a mission.” An iconic TV and movie series begins with the words, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it…” Companies are driven by “mission statements”. When Jesus left this earth He left His followers with a mission. The mission of the church is the task given by God for the people of God to accomplish in the world. In this three-week series called “THE MISSION”, we will discover what that mission is, what it means, and why we should take it seriously in areas outside of our own country.
JUNE 13 – “A GREAT COMMISSION” The Great Commission has been and is the foundation for evangelism and cross-cultural missions work in Christian theology. Because Jesus gave final instructions for His followers to go to all nations and that He would be with them even until the very end of the age, Christians of all generations have embraced this command. As many have said, it was not "The Great Suggestion." In this opening message we find Jesus commanded his followers from every generation to put our faith into action and to go make disciples.
JUNE 20 – “A GLOBAL AMBITION” In spite of the global pandemic, God is moving in the country of India. One of the organizations making an impact is FAAM – the For All Mankind Movement.

Kevin Philips, the founder of FAAM, will be our guest speaker and share what God is doing now in India and in the region where we give our resources – the state of Rajasthan.
JUNE 27 – “A GOSPEL IGNITION” If “What’s the point of the Bible?” were a question on Family Feud, there’s a good chance one of the top survey responses would be “sharing the gospel.” Have you ever wondered what the gospel is? The word “gospel” means news. It is the news about who Jesus Christ is, what He has done, and how that changes everything for all of us. In this closing message we will learn why the Gospel is so important in the mission of the church.
