“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
Dr. Gene Lingerfelt and Faith Christian Center support missions work around the world and at home. The call to support missions and missionaries is part of God’s plan to reach the lost with the Good News of the Gospel. As Paul wrote to Timothy, a young man he trained for ministry, God wants all men and women to be saved. (2 Timothy 3:9) But as Paul also asks in Romans 10:14-15, “how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Indeed!
The book of Acts not only provides us with the history of the early Church, it also gives us a blueprint for Missions. Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus reminded the disciples that they should continue His work once they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They were to then “go into all the world.” They had a mission to share the love of God and the Good News of the Gospel with everyone they came into contact with, carrying the Gospel to the uttermost ends of the earth. At Faith Christian Center, Dr. Gene Lingerfelt often teaches on the Great Commission. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 28, that we are not just to make believers or converts. Jesus actually commanded us to make disciples, teaching them to obey God’s commands. That is the focus and mission of Faith Christian Center in every service, every outreach, and every missions endeavor.
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” -2 Peter 3:9
Dr. Gene Lingerfelt teaches regularly that everyone who knows the kindness of Christ should share it with others. God wants the world to know about His Son. He has chosen us as individuals and as churches to share the Good News of the Gospel with others.
“God has not just called us to make believers or converts, He has called us to make disciples, teaching them to obey,” explains Dr. Gene Lingerfelt. “God has called us to do that, going into all the world preaching the Good News of the Gospel.”
At Faith Christian Center, we believe that as followers of Christ, we are to share the love and goodness of God with everyone we come into contact with. Every person deserves the opportunity to hear the Gospel at least once! As Paul says in Romans 10:15, “How beautiful–how precious–are the feet of those who bring good news!” Not everyone will accept the Gospel or believe, but as Christians, we must do our part and give everyone the opportunity to hear the Gospel at least once and to make that choice or decision.
