Missions

Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."  --  Matthew 28:18-20

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."  -- Acts 1:8

 

Missions at PBC

The spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not only a mandate for the local church, but is also at the very heart of who we are and what we are to be about. Philadelphia Baptist Church desires to be a church which is constantly seeking ways to participate in both local and global mission by giving and the direct involvement of people from within our church. We believe that the pulse of our body is directly evidenced by our continuing participation in developing and sending workers into the harvest. We trust that in His sovereignty God will bring about the fulfillment of Revelation 7:9 :

After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:  "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." 

We wait and work expectantly for the day when this is a reality. We consider ourselves privileged to be chosen by God to further his Glory locally and throughout the world.
