  1. Missions Commanded: Missions is not an option. God has a world vision and He has invested in this earth by sending His own Son.

[Matthew 28:18-20]
  2. Missions Located: Missions is about going to specific people and specific places. He has so designed each one of us to reach the various ethnos around us and beyond. He has foreseen every tribe and language and people standing before the throne. He has empowered us with the Holy Spirit. We may you various methods and ways to do this through His wisdom and power. [Acts 1:8]
  3. Missions Motivated: Missions is not about reaching out to people we do not like. It is not about going and condemning the lost. IT is loving others the way God has loved us. IT is about having compassion for the lost. It is loving God enough so that we overflow with love for our neighbour. [Mark 10:30-31]
  4. Missions Propagated: Missions is about networking and partnering with others of like faith and purpose to see that this gospel of the Kingdom is preached and proclaimied to the ends of the earth. IT is introducing men and women to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. [Matthew 24:14]
  5. Mission Celebrated: Missions is good news and good acts that brings joy and praises to all who receive it. It is not about making people more religious. It is about bringing transformation in people lives, who then change their communities in a positive way. [Acts 13:48, 49, 52]
