Missions was commissioned by Jesus Christ,
"But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses
unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
Missions begins at home (Jerusalem),
Missions continues in our surrounding area (Judea)
Missions reaches cultures and people groups other than our own (Samaria),
Missions extends into all nations (the uttermost part of the earth).
Missions takes the gospel
to the regions beyond,
...beyond our homes
...beyond our church,
...beyond our national borders
...beyond our comfort zone
...beyond our gifts and abilities
...beyond our wildest dreams!
