Expanding the Mission: Reaching Our World
Jesus was clear when He instructed the disciples to “proclaim the gospel to all nations.” Matthew tells us it was a command. Jesus went to the villages bringing a message of hope to lost people who needed forgiveness. He set the example as a shepherd searching for one sheep lost in the darkness.
Today, it is not difficult to recognize the lostness of humanity in every culture of the world. Evangelism is a response to the lostness of mankind that comes from the heart of the Father. Until every village, language, and people group has received the gospel, the work of the church is not complete.
In this mega World Missions edition, you will read challenging and informative articles by great missions leaders and pastors such as: Omar Beiler, L. John Bueno, Randy Hurst, E. Scott Martin, Randall Ross, Jean-Baptiste Sawadogo, Randy Valimont, Brad Walz, and others.
