Missions

“Then Jesus came to them and said,

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and makedisciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

Just as Jesus told His disciples in Jerusalem, it is true for His followers today:

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
