We seek to obey Christ's great commission by joining with Belizeans to follow him together. Pray that Christ uses us to build up his Body in the following ways:
TO MAKE DISCIPLES WHO MAKE NEW DISCIPLES
Jesus sends us with his authority to
- Go: Forming relationships by crossing those boundaries that keep us apart: nationality, ethnicity, class, culture, or language;
- Make disciples: Proclaiming fearlessly to absolutely everyone the Good News of his salvation through a relationship with him;
- Baptize: Bringing new followers of Jesus into the his Body, the Church, and sealing them by his supernatural grace to be with him forever;
- Teach: instructing new followers in the whole counsel of God, so that they can know and love him as they then make disciples of others!
TO FORM LEADERS WHO FORM NEW LEADERS
Jesus pours out his Holy Spirit so that we will:
- Speak peace: declaring the Father's forgiveness for sins and removing any obstacles that could possibly prevent redeemed sinners from serving the Lord Jesus Christ as his chosen ambassadors to a world that desperately needs him;
- Send others: preparing, apprenticing, and commissioning Jesus' followers to serve as such Spirit-led leaders of their families, churches, and communities that others will follow their example and become new leaders as well.
TO GROW CHURCHES THAT GROW NEW CHURCHES
Jesus empowers us to be his witnesses:
- In Jerusalem: serving every church that Christ has already established so that its members can bear witness to the power of his resurrection;
- In Judea and Samaria: enabling every church to plant new churches as the Lord leads, so that these new churches can bear witness in new communities to the power of his resurrection;
- To the ends of the earth: inspiring every church to send its own missionaries out to the ends of the earth, that all of creation might bear witness to the power of his resurrection before his triumphant return in glory!
