What is Missions?
Missions in simply evangelism across some sort of barrier. That barrier can be geographic, social status, race, language or anything. Missions is carrying out the Great Commission that Jesus set for us in Matthew 28:18-20
Then Jesus came and to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age'.”
In the church, mission activities are often associated with community service, giving or helps as a means to reach across the existing barrier to give the Good News of the Gospel and watch the Good News transform lives.
