Quotes about Missions-Defined


By studying the apostles’ work in the New Testament, our only lead as to what a missionary actually is, we learn that missionaries are focused on these five responsibilities:

1. Evangelizing.

2. Congregationalizing (starting churches).

3. Establishing elders in the churches.

4. Setting the churches in order (teaching them how to function and what to believe).

5. Remaining in contact with churches to offer guidance.


Missions is not so much going somewhere as it is in following Someone.


Missions is the church’s sending out of missionaries (the sent ones) to pioneer the church among peoples who otherwise have no access of the gospel.
