Missions is a special assignment with responsibility given to a person or group in a particular area. Christian missions is an organized effort to spread Christianity in a specific place. The purpose of Christian missions is to build God’s Kingdom by evengelism and teaching God’s truth.
Every Chrisian is called to do something GREAT—to build the Kingdom of God. All believers are called to help fulfill the GREAT COMMISSION. This might involve going or helping in other ways. We need to work with the Holy Spirit because He is the one who convict people of sin and shows God’s power on earth. Christians who wants to fulfill the Great Commission NEED to disciple and/or evangelize people. We must intentionally make the effort to make disciples.
We ourselves need to be a disciple of Jesus to effectively make other disciples, so we should be growing to know God’s Word better and to hear the Holy Spirit more clearly. MATURITY is determined by our ability to hear from and obey God.
MISSIONARIES are people who evangelize, make disciples, and plant churches where people do not know the Lord Jesus.
