At Grace Fellowship, our desire is to faithfully obey the commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Great Commission, to go into all the world and to make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to observe all of Jesus’ teachings. Our missions efforts are in keeping with this mandate. In this lesson, we discuss our church’s philosophy of missions and we hear a report on the missions efforts of our team in Colombia, one of our own who serves in east Asia, and our recent efforts among our neighbors.
