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.

This website is devoted to the fulfillment of the Great Commission by providing helpful information for believers interested in getting involved in missions personally or simply deciding what types of mission efforts and agencies to support. The Greatest Commandment is to "Love the Lord your God", yet 1.6 billion people in the world cannot obey this commandment, because they have never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.(1) This is why the Great Commission of making "disciples of all nations" is so important. God desires to be glorified in all the earth and to give eternal life to all who believe in the Son. Allowing for this to happen is the task that has been charged to the Christians of this age. We are responsible to God to see His name glorified in all the earth, which will in turn bring salvation, blessings, transformation, and the ushering of Christ's return. Since this task is so essential to the body of Christ, it is imperative that we Christians understand what God is doing in the world today and how everyone of us fits into the task of the Great Commission. Unfortunately, the average Christian is ill-educated when it comes to understanding the Great Commission and the status of world evangelization. This is primarily because the landscape of the mission field has changed dramatically in the last few decades with the focus on the last remaining unreached people groups, the North to South shift, the West to East shift, the explosion of the national missionary movement, the two-thirds world missionaries, technological advances, and various global issues. The features at this site will seek to shed light on various aspects of modern Christian missions and educate believers so that we may all work as one body to see the Great Commission fulfilled. May God bless you as you seek to learn more about God's work and your role in missions.
