Why Missions?

The Bible from Genesis to Revelation reveals God’s desire and design that all the people of the world may know Him. To live in accordance with God’s teaching is to seek and save the lost as He has done throughout history. Today, the Church is God’s instrument to communicate the message of Christ to the people of the world.

 

We’re called to be obedient to God’s words and we’re called to teach others to obey God’s words. (Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:18-20).

 

How?

Working in cooperation with all the ministries of Gateway, the Missions Ministry will encourage and assist our members to live for others by serving people in our local community, in our nation, and around the world simultaneously as demonstrated by the early church.

 

Each member of Gateway will be educated, equipped, and encouraged to participate in God’s mission to bring the unsaved and unreached to life in Christ by going on short-term mission trips, committing their lives to full-time service, participating in community ministry, learning about the lost of the world, and supporting efforts to reach the unsaved and the unreached through prayer, giving, and encouragement.

 

God loves lost people and desires to draw them to Himself. God blesses congregations and individuals whose passions, resources, and energies are invested in the things most important to him. Therefore, God’s mission is essential to Gateway’s effectiveness and to every member’s growth in grace.
