“For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?
As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!’”
The Great Commission
At Whitefield, we believe that one of our primary missions as Christians is to fulfill the “Great Commission.” This was given to us by Jesus after His resurrection. By telling others about what God has done through us, we hope that many will come to know Christ.
Jesus said this to his disciples:
“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)
We are His disciples
For almost two thousand years, the Gospel has continued to spread. Every Christian all over the world has his or her own “Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.” As we seek to share the Good News about what Jesus Christ has done for us, we also travel locally (Jerusalem), regionally (Judea/Samaria), and globally (The Ends of the Earth).
