Missions at Grace
Our purpose is to glorify God and further Christ's mission by involving every man, woman and child of our church in effective ministry to the nations. Our church chooses to engage in missions because of the command in Matthew 28:19-20:
Therefore, go 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Our obedience to His command is motivated by the ultimate goal of the church, which is worship. God deserves worship. Our passion for missions flows from our passion for God. As our worship of God grows, so will our commitment to invite others to become His worshippers. As John Piper says, "When the flame of worship burns with the heat of God's true worth, the light of missions will shine to the darkest peoples on earth."
