Mission begins with God. He has initiated an unstoppable plan to renew our fallen world and rescue his wayward creatures. And he has graciously invited the church to participate in this mission with him by loving our neighbors and making disciples of all nations. We believe, therefore, that we are not meant to stay within the comfotable confines of the church. Instead, we're meant to scatter into all parts of the world, taking the good news of the gospel wherever there is a need. Mission mobilizes us to confront the brokenness, injustice, and spiritual darknessof our world with the hope of Jesus Christ.
