The Purpose of Church of God WORLD Missions

The Church of God is committed to making disciples throughout the world, obeying Christ by fulfilling the Great Commission: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20

The scriptural purposes for the involvement of the Church of God in missions are:

  • To fulfill the Great Commission of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:17; John 20:21; Acts 1:8).
  • To share Christ’s love for the world (Luke 10:2; Matthew 9:36-38; Matthew 18:10-14).
  • To minister to the totality of human need (Matthew 24:31, 46; Luke 16:9; Luke 16:19-31; Luke 10:2).
  • To bring men and women to the knowledge of God and to His redeeming grace (John 3:16; Romans 10:13-15).
  • To obey Christ by confessing Him to the world (Matthew 10:32,33; Matthew 24:41-46).

Church of God World Missions exists to:

  • Preach the gospel of Christ
  • Develop mature disciples for the Kingdom of God
  • Lead non-Christian people to salvation
  • Help unchurched or nominal Christians become committed disciples of Christ
  • Train national leaders to proclaim the gospel to their own people and to other nations
  • Help relieve people who are suffering and in need
