What is Christian Missions? Christian missions is following Christ’s call: sharing the Gospel with the lost world through God’s wisdom and strength. After Christ’s death and resurrection, He commanded the disciples to share the Gospel, the message of His redemption. (Matthew 28:19-20).
Sharing the Gospel humbly, boldly, and passionately is our Christian mission. But we cannot do it alone. While our mission is sharing Christ, the power and results come from the Lord. He gives us the wisdom, strength, and desire to witness! Through our witness, He works repentance and faith in the sinner’s heart (2 Corinthians 5:20-21).
The Christian mission of sharing Christ does not end with a sinner’s salvation. The commission was to make disciples – thus, Christian missions involves not only evangelism but also discipleship.
Christian missions is obeying Christ, sharing Christ, and relying on Christ. Specifically, God sends His people through the support of the church to the unreached. All Christians, however, have the mission of reconciliation. The Lord works through them to rescue the lost. What greater mission can one answer?
