  3. 3. It’s what Christians are all about.
  4. 4. The Great Commission
  5. 5. Matthew 28:17-20 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.

  11. 11. Everyone Can Experience
  12. 12. An Encouragement ✤ 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
  13. 13. Romans 1:11-13 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...
  14. 14. Phillipians 2:1-4 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.
