Aims of the Mission
The aim of the missionary field is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations. This is based on the Great Commission, which Jesus gave to his disciples before he ascended into heaven:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
Missionaries work in a variety of ways to fulfill the Great Commission. They may teach Bible studies, preach in churches, or simply share their faith with others in their everyday lives. They may also work on humanitarian projects, such as building schools or providing medical care.
The ultimate goal of all missionary work is to help people come to know Jesus Christ and experience the salvation that he offers. Missionaries believe that everyone has the right to hear the gospel and to make a decision about whether or not to follow Jesus.
Here are some specific examples of the aim of the missionary field:
- To share the good news of Jesus Christ with those who have never heard it.
- To disciple new believers and help them grow in their faith.
- To plant new churches and strengthen existing churches.
- To provide humanitarian aid and serve those in need.
- To promote peace and reconciliation in conflict zones.
- To advocate for social justice and human rights.
Missionaries play a vital role in the global church, and their work is essential to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
