Missions Pastor: Rob Bourn
At New Hope, we are passionate about missions because Jesus is passionate about missions. In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus commanded His disciples to “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” Again in Mark 16:15 “He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
Pray, Give & Go!
While not everyone can physically go on a missions trip, everyone can pray and everyone can give something.
God’s Word is true “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” Therefore, we lead with irrational generosity.
In 2 Corinthians 8 & 9, the apostle Paul shares the inspiring testimony of sacrificial giving by the Macedonian churches and establishes the biblical foundation for faith promise giving.
A faith promise is a sacred act, a spiritual agreement between you and God as you commit to give regularly, as He enables you, to help fulfill God’s plan to reach a lost world.
Paul is careful to emphasize that the Macedonian churches gave in two ways: according to their ability and beyond their ability.
We believe every believer should be involved in missions, beginning in their local community and reaching across the globe. That’s how through faith promise giving, in conjunction with the Assemblies of God World Missions and U.S. Missions we support 115 missionaries around the world in bringing a lost soul into The Kingdom every 52 seconds.
Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Go On A Missions Trip:
1) Because Jesus commanded it (Matthew 28:19-20). We won’t keep this to ourselves.
2) Because you will see God in a way you have never seen Him before and it will change your life.
3) So you can experience the life transforming work that your prayers and financial giving has provided.
