The Local Missions Team, which exists to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandment, spreads the love of God throughout the Bradford area with acts of kindness, including organizing Trunk or Treat, passing out Thanksgiving meals, hosting a Big Game Party and more.
The Great COMMISSION Locally –
Matthew 28:16-20 16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Mark 16:15 He said to them, “GO into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
The Great COMMANDMENT
Matthew 22:36-40 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Following the example of Jesus, He…
- ENTERED our world.
- MET us where we are at.
- Had an ATTITUDE and ACTIONS of humility, kindness, and service.
- Spoke truth in ways people could UNDERSTAND.
- Met NEEDS.
- Offered SALVATION, not condemnation.
Jesus tells us to do the SAME.
John 13:15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
