"What Is Missions?"

Aug 8, 2021    Gary Moritz - Lead Pastor    Genesis 1
Every follower of Jesus Christ has been commanded to be On Mission. This year’s theme, On Mission: Until the Whole World Hears, is a call to action. It’s a call to pray, hear, learn about, and engage in what God is doing all around the globe through City United Church.

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14

While a global pandemic may have changed the methods in which we do missions, the command has and will never change. We must continue to be On Mission and be obedient to the Lord’s command and fund local and global missions through the local church so that we can continue to reach all ethical groups for the Gospel, Until the Whole World Hears.

An example of what we will be doing this month is found in the first Church in the book of Acts.

“And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed. And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles. And there they abode long time with the disciples.” Acts 14:23, 27-28
