Testimony of Faith Our World Belongs to God #41
Joining the mission of God, the church is sent with the gospel of the kingdom
to call everyone to know and follow Christ and to proclaim to all the assurance that
in the name of Jesus there is forgiveness of sin and new life for all who repent and believe.
The Spirit calls all members to embrace God’s mission in their neighborhoods and in the world:
to feed the hungry, bring water to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked,
care for the sick, and free the prisoner.
We repent of leaving this work to a few, for this mission is central to our being.
Closing Song: Go Forth In His Name
God’s Parting Blessing
