OUTREACH - "Making disciples of Jesus Christ from all nations . . "
From the beginning, God has sought worshippers from every tribe and tongue on the face of the earth. Early on, he spoke to Abraham saying, "Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father's house, to the land which I will show you; and I will make you a great nation and I will bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." That blessing for every group of people on earth, was delivered through Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, and a direct descendant of Abraham. After atoning for the sins of the world, the Lord Jesus commanded His followers, "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
