We don’t think missions is a department in a church, but is a modern term used to describe something that is ancient. God’s heart for the entire world. Even in Genesis 12, God told Abraham that his descendants will be a blessing to all nations. Later the prophet Isaiah talked about the sacrifice of the Son of God. He said it is too small a thing for only Israel, but will be salvation to all the earth (Isaiah 49:6). We believe Jesus himself gives us a charge to participate in His plan of redemption (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15). Our simple participation is not to indulge in some other human’s happiness overseas or for some young adults to have an adventure. Our response is to the charge of Jesus, to participate in the purpose of God’s heart to redeem all peoples, who He has a right to.
