The Purpose of Christian Missions
In the first place, Christian Missions exist in order to glorify the name of God the Creator. Christians believe in only one God, God Almighty, the Creator of all living things. God made each of us to be unique and special persons with eternal value to him. To praise His Name means to honor God which is, to put it in more simple phrases, to make God appear attractive and appealing for others. Sure, people have the right to be dissatisfied with God however, they shouldn't ever reject God because of the unseemly character of a mission group or team or team member. Represent the Body of Christ Second, Christian mission is all about modeling Jesus' Body Christ. In order to be Christ's Body, it is to model the kind loving fellowship that comes from being in the presence of Jesus and being in the Presence of God. Christian missionaries aren't perfect, but as a group they provide other people in the world a sort of unity and friendship which isn't found in the secular world. Christian Mission teams serve as ambassadors or envoys that symbolize God's Kingdom of God as a place that is a refuge and a secure place to escape the storms of life. To be a model of what it means to be part of the Body of Christ means to cherish each individual member, despite their particularities and quirks, and help each other reach their full potential as God intended. As such, team members search for God together , and when conflict occurs, as inevitably it will it will, they're quick to discuss differences, forgive each other and move forward together, walking hand-in-hand. Visit:- Evangelize Unbelievers The third essential task in Christian Missions is to evangelize those who aren't believers. The word evangelize is a bit misleading, as the phrase evangelize- has a bad connotation, as it gives the image of one Christian hammering a non-Christian over the head with the Bible until they bow to their knees and pray"The sinner's Prayer.But in this context, the term"evangelize" is simply - to tell the good news- of God's love for them. to testify about Him His character, who He is, and the things Jesus has achieved. If there is only one Lord God who is the only true god, it's an imperative that Christians and missionaries, as well as Christian missionaries, share with others about His existence and ways to have a relationship with Him. Sharing the gospel with others can also include telling them about God's Son Jesus Christ as well as his compassionate sacrifice at the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, and the way Jesus triumphed over death by resurrecting in the 3rd day. Perhaps, it is best written that sharing the good news doesn't mean forcing Christ into the throat of another. Even the most persuasive person could make another person a true believer by coercion. Christians are required to be kind, loving and courteous. It is God's responsibility in convincing others to believe. It's the Christian missionary's responsibility to share the gospel in a warm, caring manner. Learn to Educate Disciples of Jesus Christ The fifth objective of Christian missions is the education of disciples. To educate disciples means teaching new believers to increase their faith and understanding about God in addition to Jesus Christ. The primary source of instruction is that of the Christian Bible. The new believers should be educated or trained on the principles regarding Christian beliefs and practice including how to: Worship God - Read and study the Bible - Pray for themselves and for others - Connect with fellow believers - Resolve conflicts - - Forgive oneself and others. - Share with others about God and Jesus Establish local church authorities Another important task for Christian missions is the establishment of local church bodies or to start new church groups. Christians did not intend to live their lives in an isolated manner. Every person was uniquely designed to function in an overall group of believers. The reason for this is that each human is limited in his or his or her capabilities. There is no one who can do all things. Christians must be able to help each other balance and assist each other to reach their maximum potential. It is the Christian Bible tells us that each member of the Christian family has been granted particular spiritual gifts that help in the running in the ministry of church. The aim is to create a space of mutual love where fellow believers can worship God and encourage each other in their relationship and relationship with God and His Son, Jesus Christ. It should be noted that founding the local church does not require that the church be the same way as American or Western cultural norms. Each culture has its own unique interpretation of how to practice church. Missionaries should allow national believers to consider what church means within their cultural context. Another aspect of the job of establishing an organized church is to train and instruct members in the management of the church. This includes teaching them the steps of: - Define their concept of what the church should be, - Writing out instructions for the church's discipline Learn how to manage church finances. Empower and equip National Leaders A sixth purpose of Christian Missions is to equip and strengthen national leaders. The ultimate goal for Christian Mission teams is make themselves from a position. Missionaries often lack faith and trust in God to keep His church running when they are gone. Christian leaders are typically too slow to give up the leadership responsibilities to believers from the nation. It is a little absurd that these missionaries who rely on God enough to abandon their homes and family to go to a strange land far off but aren't able to muster enough faith in God to build a capable leadership to replace them. However, developing leadership is the primary goal for an Christian missions team. Encourage the National Church to be co-laborers in Christ It's not a good purpose for a Christian mission organization to remain on the ground for the rest of its life. It is another imperative that mission teams develop the exit strategy, clearly defining what a mature and mature national church is supposed to look like, and how to exit when the appropriate time comes. This does not mean that the association has to come to an end. Actually, the seventh purpose of Christian missions is encourage the church across the nation to become co-laborers in Christ. These encouragements can be provided through letters or periodic visits. In the event that a mission organization left a foreign area the national church or any of the local bodies may experience periods during which they'll experience difficult times. It is not the job of the mission group to return and re-take the reins, instead, they should be there for moral assistance and encouragement. There are many important responsibilities applicable to Christian missions. However, among all the responsibilities that can be outlined as essential, there are seven tasks that are most central. This article has outlined and briefly discussed the seven key issues that concern Christian missions. Eric Coggins and his family were missionaries in Cambodia over the course of six years. In addition, he's experienced a lot of interaction with people from many different backgrounds including African-American, Latin American, Japanese, Korean, Cambodian, Australian and European. His goal is to create the highest quality of life for all people around the world, and to assist people realize their God-given potential.
