COMMUNITY OF GRACE
Missions Development Committee exists to educate the church regarding God’s vision for missions, provide opportunities for servant evangelism, and short-term missions, as well as support the work of those laboring in full time ministry.
That Jesus, the exact representation of God’s glory and His Goodness, would be revealed globally, penetrating every nation, people group, and community through His church.
Hab. 2:14, Matt. 24:14, Rev. 7:9
Our Beliefs & Values:
We believe that the whole of Scripture is one continuous story and that the Abrahamic Covenant in Genesis 12:1-3 and its many reiterations throughout scripture including The Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 is of one theme. God reveals His glory to all peoples so that He may receive glory from all creation. This is the purpose of the spread of the Gospel.
We acknowledge that throughout the promises of scripture there is a “Top line/Bottom line” principle. “Top line” = God blesses His people; “Bottom line” = His people are to bless others that God may receive glory (Psalm 67).
We strive to keep the end view in mind – Global thinking (Isaiah 56:6-7; Habakkuk 2:14; Revelations 7:9)
