Global Missions and the Church

In this six-week course, we join as believers to learn together about God’s missional heart for all the world. Journeying from Genesis to Revelation, we will see from Scripture how God desires to redeem for Himself people from not just the people of Israel, but from the whole world. Moving toward a focus on how God has moved in history from the Book of Acts to the present day, we will discover how we can all, as parts of Jesus’ body, the church, be involved in the process of making disciples and planting healthy churches around the world. As Paul Ephesians 3:9-10, God desires “to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.”
