“Missions” is the worldwide outreach of making disciples of all the nations to establish God’s kingdom, baptizing those disciples in the name of the triune God, and teaching them to obey God’s commands (Matthew 28:19-20). It is the work that helps the gospel spread throughout the world and multiply the Church.
CCA believes that the Church is God’s primary means of extending His kingdom and that all Christians play an important part in this work. God does not call every believer to be a full-time missionary, but He does call us to be involved in missions — if not as goers, then as senders. If you have any questions about our missions work, please contact this missions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
