Every believer is a missionary. If we are to be effective believers and a church committed to transforming our times, then we, as the hands and feet of Jesus, must PRAY, SEND, and GO. The Great Commission is a mandate for all who claim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior:
Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
