MISSIONS

Acts 1:8 Mission Strategy

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8)  

Jesus was concerned that His disciples witness to those who were closest and to the ones furthest away, simply all people.  Jesus didn’t neglect one area over another; rather, he offered the disciples a balanced approach on where to share the Gospel  Believing this, we hope to model Jesus’ plan for evangelism.  Our Acts 1:8 Mission Strategy looks to develop mission partners and ministries within four specific areas: Bartlett (Jerusalem), Memphis/Mid-South (Judea), North America (Samaria), and internationally (ends of the earth.)
