Matthew 9:37-38 says, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” On this page of our website we would like to introduce you to our belief in the importance of missions in the Church and to introduce you to each of those missions we support through First Christian Church of Golden City.
As we look at the Great Commission given to the early Church in Acts 1:8 we’re told, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
It is our belief there is a simple formula found in this verse giving us direction in sending people and money as our witness. We begin in our Jerusalem (the Golden City area) by developing a strong benevolent ministry and working with organizations locally. These types of ministries make up our “Jerusalem”.
Next is our Judea and Samaria (the surrounding region outside our local community throughout the state of Missouri). Cookson Hills and Team Expansion for example are within the region and are considered home missions.
When we look to the utter most parts of the world in completing our formula we have chosen to support White Fields Evangelism and Prince Ministries in Africa.
