Why PMC is involved in missions?
Every year when it comes time to start planning and thinking about Missions, I am met with questions from people like, “Is it really necessary?” It’s a valid question when you consider the needs in our own city and congregations and how much we spend on Missions.
Yes, there is need all around and yes, it is really necessary to send people on missions.
"People who don't believe in missions have not read the New Testament.
Right from the beginning Jesus said the field is the world.
The early church took Him at His word and went East, West, North and South."
– J. Howard Edington
We are blessed to be a blessings to other people, in particular to unreached people groups where there are no viable church to share about God’s love and His redemption plan.
- The Great Commission is for every believer.
- All Christians should be meaningfully involved in the MISSION of GOD
