A Word from Our Missions Pastor:
About 2,300 years ago, Alexander the Great, at only 33 years of age, marched his army from Greece to India. Though the distance was long, his army was UNSTOPPABLE. That military mission had long ranging influence. The Greek culture and language became standard for over 3 centuries. No wonder they call him Alexander the Great.
About 330 years after Alexander the Great died, another remarkable 33-year-old embarked on a march. Like Alexander’s march, this one was UNSTOPPABLE. Of course, I’m talking about Jesus and His mission to reach the world through the church.
At His ascension, Jesus gave the command to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. His army was the church and He gave us two powerful weapons. He said we would have the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, to empower us to be witnesses to the entire world (Acts 1:8). He also gave us the gospel, the good news about Jesus, which is the very power of God Almighty Himself (Rom 1:16).
We know the church will complete this mission because we see the end of the story! People from every nation, every tribe, every language will be standing before the throne of the Lamb and worshipping Him. In fact, Jesus promises victory to the church in this mission. He said, “and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matt 16:18)”.
Will you join this mission of God? Will you pray, give and go so that the gospel can be taken to our community and to the ends of the earth? Will you take an active part in the victory secured by Jesus and occupied by the UNSTOPPABLE church?
