As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
"As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world."
The Lord Jesus Christ, John 17:18
Once we understand that God formed us for a family, created us to become more like Christ, and shaped to serve him in ministry, we are ready to grow in the MISSION that God has for us.
No matter what stage of life you are in, you will be challenged to join God in transforming our world. You will find opportunities to serve your community and impact eternity.
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
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,
teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age."
The Church has always called this "The Great Commission." Not one of many of them, but THE commission that we are commanded to keep as preeminent above all our efforts. In fact, it sets the parameters of our service to Him.
If you're a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Great Commission is YOUR commission. "To fulfill your mission" wrote Rick Warren, "will require that you abandon your agenda and accept God's Agenda for your life."
It's a call for every member of God's family. And it is GREAT. Think about it: disciples are a part of the greatest, largest, most diverse and most significant cause in human history: The Kingdome of God! We will have other life tasks, but our primary work is to fulfill the Great Commission-in our home, in our community...and beyond. We have been entrusted to share the good news of Christ! This is a privilege each of us shares, as well as a responsibility we must take personally.
At Grace Community Church our desire is to enable people to impact others through missions.
