What is the Purpose of the Mission?

We believe that the work of the missionary should be centered in evangelism, establishing local New Testament churches, and training of nationals to carry on the work of the local church.  We are glad to see the use of modern tools such as radio and literature etc. to help reach the people.  But we believe these tools must be used carefully so that they do not become an end in themselves.  We believe that the establishment of local New Testament churches should result from the missionaries’ work.

What is the Purpose of the Local Church?

New Testament Christianity is centered in the local church.  The Bible commands us to reach the whole world with the Gospel (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).  This began early in the history of the church when the believers who were in the church at Jerusalem were scattered and began establishing new churches (Acts 8:1).  Soon the church at Antioch began giving on her own to help in the establishment of other local churches (Acts 11:19-30; Acts 13:1-4).  The sensitivity of the church at Antioch to the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:2), the sending of proven men of spiritual leadership (Acts 13:1), and their direct participation in this missionary venture (Acts 13:3) are principles for the church today.  The Spirit of God confirmed this missionary outreach (Acts 13:4).  As in the early New Testament example, we hold that it is the local church who sends the missionary.

World population is exploding and the task before us is increasing.  Unless men, women, boys and girls hear the Gospel and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, they will be lost and spend eternity in Hell (Romans 6:23).  God has given us the responsibility of reaching our generation with the precious Word of God.  If we consider world population alone, this is the greatest opportunity and responsibility in history.
