GLOBAL OUTREACH (MISSIONS)

Matthew 28: 19-20 - 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. (NIV)

Our thoughts and direction are summed up in this - THE GREAT COMMISSION: Jesus gives all Christians the call to His service in sharing the good news of God's love with others.

Our Mission Statement is to support missions in local, state, regional, and foreign areas that are based on the Restoration Movement Theology.

The supported mission must actively equip believers, train local disciples, and send out indigenous ministers. Additionally, the mission must be effective, accountable, and good stewards of their finances. A final consideration is given to missions where few are going to have a greater impact for God's Kingdom.

  

OUR GIVING

Our belief at LEGACY CHRISTIAN CHURCH is that we should tithe 10% of the general offering to Missions. The Mission Committee is charged with the responsibility to oversee and select the missions that our church supports.
