Gospel Light Baptist Church’s purpose of “Glorifying God” and mission of “Making Disciples of all Nations” finds it’s ultimate realization in a global emphasis found in Psalms 46:10. ” Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” We were created to impact all nations for the glory of Christ. Matthew 28:19 commands and commissions us to “go and make disciples of all nations…”
Our goal is to be a community of self-initiating, reproducing disciples who are partnering with our brothers and sisters here and around the world to produce churches all around our city, this country, and to the ends of the earth. Our strategy is to send out short-term teams to serve the local church and to expose our faith family to other contexts, allowing God to use those experiences to prompt people to plant their lives and establish churches in mid and long-term experiences.
We want to be intentional about influencing various cultures with the Gospel through various means. In order to be effective in, and equipped for, cross-cultural ministry, we focus our energy here on Gospel ministry that transcends culture. At the same time, we wisely and responsibly contextualize ministry methods in view of the culture around us.
Part of that focus is the sending of church planting and support teams and individuals into the nations.
