GBC Missions

What is Missions?

The work of missions is the proclamation of the gospel in Word and deed.
(Mark 16:15, 1 John 3:16-18)

Why do we participate in Missions?

The Christian life is most pleasing to God and most joyful for us when we are giving our life away. It is a privilege to bear fruit! (John 15:1-11)
Every follower of Christ has receieved the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:18-20)
We build life-changing relationships when we serve alongside each other.

What are our Objectives for Short-Term Mission Trips / Service Projects?

When we participate in trips or projects, we seek two outcomes: we desire to have a helpful impact on those we serve and we desire to be transformed in the process. Short-term mission trips and/or short-term service projects should be well conceived, and support long-term objectives. When done well, we believe that short-term opportunities further the Kingdom, and give us a taste of the joy that comes from a life of participating in God's work.
