“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
The verses above are known as the Great Commission – the vision of the
church, given by the Head of the church Himself. There can be no other
vision, and nothing as important in the life of the church than these
words of Jesus.
WordWise has always been involved in missions, both local and foreign.
We have taken to gospel to more nations than we can mention, and visited
around 20 nations in person to do exactly what Jesus told us to do.
While our gifting is more in the area of teaching, we have seen people
surrender their lives to the Lord everywhere we went.
Missions is the heartbeat of the church, and the very reason for our
existence. Without a vibrant missions outreach, the church falls into a
deadly routine of inward-looking programs.
Andrew Murray, in his book The Key to the Missionary Problem, wrote that
every church, no mater how small, can have an international influence
through foreign missions. This truth has become more powerful today,
more than a hundred years after they were written. The internet opened
wide doors for every Christian to take the gospel around the world
without any cost to them. Social media, where people live these days, is
a mission field that is ready to receive the good news in a world that
is falling apart.
Our Bible School, WordWise Word School, has been teaching the Word to
people free of charge wherever they are. Christians have been educated
in the truth of the Word, and pastors and ministers raised; many
churches have been planted and souls swept into God’s Kingdom by simply
taking advantage of the wide open door given to us by the internet.
May you be inspired to become a missionary today!
