Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 10:13-17, Ephesians 4:11-16, Acts 11:19-21, Ephesians 3:7-12

Our response to Christ’s commission to “make disciples” is not complete unless we recognize it as a call to “go” to “all nations.” Fulfilling the great commission as Christ gave it is the responsibility of every local church   family. This means that we can be confident that global missions will arise out of a Biblical pattern of discipleship. Goers and senders will rise up as we equip the saints for ministry. This is modeled for us by the early Christians in the New Testament. Those who go will be motivated by the lack of   existing church families in many nations of the world. As discipleship leads us to surrender our identity and be transformed into the identity of Jesus, we will share the heart that He has with His father to see His name glorified all over the world. We will go because all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him. We will go with confidence, because we know that His mission to see many tribes and tongues call upon the name of Jesus will be carried out.
