Our Mission in 2015
We believe God profoundly cares about the lost and lonely, tired and troubled, determined yet disheartened of our families, neighborhoods and cities across North America … and we are called to act.
In the words of researcher David Olson, “We live in a world that is post-Christian, postmodern, and multi-ethnic, whether we realize it or not.” Meanwhile, Scripture is clear, “The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost”(Luke 19:10), and we are commissioned to join Him. “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”(Matthew 28:18-20).
As a Society of Mission, we exist to act. Responding to a fragmented world and the wide array of people in it, we are meant to love and lead with God as change agents. Life on life. Friend to friend. Neighbor to neighbor.
The Mission is committed to excellence and faithfulness in caring about this world and the people in it … because they really matter to God.
Through our strategic and distinctive call, we invite you to join us on mission in 2015… Rise, Love, Lead!
