When they saw him, they worshiped him;
but some doubted.
Then Jesus came to them and said,
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.
And surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age.

Putting Faith Into Action
✤ We have accumulated such a wealth of knowledge
✤ We have accumulated such a wealth of ﬁnance
✤ We have accumulated such a wealth of blessings
✤ God wants us to put the knowledge to good use
✤ God wants us to step in faith of what we know
✤ God wants that step of faith to become action
2 Corinthians 8:7
But just as you excel in everything
in faith, in speech, in knowledge,
in complete earnestness and in your love for us
see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
✤ Missions gives a unique opportunity to strengthen others
✤ We have had experienced that other cultures may not have had
✤ We can learn from talking to and listening to one another
✤ We unite in the knowledge that God’s love is worldwide
✤ We are encouraged to see the same love between believers
I long to see you so that I may impart to you some
spiritual gift to make you strong — that is, that you and
I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith.
I do not want you to be unaware, brothers,
that I planned many times to come to you
(but have been prevented from doing so until now)
in order that I might have a harvest among you...
If you have any encouragement from being united with
Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship
with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then
make my joy complete by being like-minded, having
the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
Do nothing out of selﬁsh ambition or vain conceit, but
in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests,
but also to the interests of others.
✤ We go out to villages where people can here the Word of God
✤ We go out to the streets where people need to experience love
✤ We go out to churches to reach believers
✤ The missions trip starts in the airport
✤ The missions trip starts at home
✤ The missions trip starts in your life
