- The Great Commission
God has called us to go into remote areas, tribal areas, big cities in many muslim nations and the religion hardened nations of the west. Recent ministry trips have been in Malaysia, Pakistan, Namibia, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.
We will by God´s grace and guidance be heading to many Asian countries, Africa, Europe and America in the near future.
"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [teach...: or, make disciples, or, Christians of all nations] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:18-20)
And that passage goes together with what Jesus said according to Mark´s gospel:
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen."
These were some of the last words of Jesus here on earth. He gave a mission that is yet to be fulfilled. Most nations have heard the gospel, but there still are places to be reached: cities, villages, tribes and cultures to be reconciled with the God of all nations. Paul wrote: "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" (Rom.10:13-14)
