LET'S TALK MISSIONS
Why is Life Chapel committed to missions?
- We are committed to missions because Jesus Christ was committed to missions. John 3:16 tells us that God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son and whoever believes in him will be saved! People are lost and we have the message that will change their lives for eternity.
- The Bible makes it clear that his people are to go to the ends of the earth and preach the good news to everyone. (Mark 16:15)
What is global and local missions?
- Global and local missions are empowered when we partner with ministries and missionaries around the world to reach the lost with the message of Jesus Christ.
- At Life Chapel, our commitment to missions means we support 39 missionaries and ministries. Our commitment to global missions impacts people on six continents as well as local ministries, US based ministries, and compassion ministries. Life Chapel truly has a global reach! For more information about our local, US based and compassion ministries, see the links below.
How can I support missions?
- In addition to your regular tithes and offerings, you should plan to give to Global Missions. Plan what you will give and give it monthly!
- Global missions giving goes a step beyond tithes and offerings. It comes from trusting God for funds to give toward reaching the world with the gospel.
- Be a part of global missions by giving and by praying for missionaries and their efforts around the world. Prayer is powerful and they depend on this to fulfill the call God has placed on their lives.
- Be a part of local outreaches and foreign missions trips that happen throughout the year!
How do we decide who to support?
- Life Chapel supports missionaries and ministries that are making an impact around the world. Typically, a missionary reaches out to us or we learn of the work they are doing and prayerfully consider partnering with them.
- The pastor and missions committee determine who to support and how much can be invested.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?"
