MISSIONS: Fulfilling the Great Commission
As the New Testament church was about to be established on the day of Pentecost many years ago, Jesus Christ said to his followers, “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.” (Acts 1:8) These are monumental words.
Bay City Baptist Church is commissioned by these words as well. We must take the glorious news of the Gospel to the ends of the earth and so we do this through our Faith Promise Missions giving. Through it, we support missionaries and church planters around the world. By the faithful giving of God’s people, the Gospel is being taken to:
- The Hmong in Green Bay, WI
- Kewaunee, Wisconsin
- Rhinelander, Wisconsin
- South Africa
- The Ivory Coast
- The Middle East
Whether across the street, or across the ocean, the saving power of the Gospel needs to be preached to all people and in all churches. Our desire, and the LORD’s heart desire, is to reach as many people as possible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We urge our people to be a part of our Faith Promise Missions giving program, so that we can do just that.
The words of 2 Corinthians 4:3 are clear: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.” Let’s be obedient to the Lord and participate in God’s work across the world.
