Missions is a big part in our daily walk with Christ. It was commissioned by Jesus Christ, before His ascension to make disciples of all nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that He has commanded us (Matthew 28:19-20).
Hearing about G3, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to learn, be equipped, as well as fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ under the preaching of the Word of God and what a blessing it was.
G3 - Gospel, Grace, Glory - is a biblical conference held annually whose mission is to educate, encourage, and equip for the work of ministry and the glory of God. This year’s topic was based on biblical missions. It was a blessed, edifying and encouraging time for all of us.
I would like to share a few things I’ve learned in the conference:
Scripture alone is all sufficient and every believer must saturate themselves in the Word of God, the Bible.
The role of the local church is important in the work of missions. All missionaries should be part of a local church.
All missionaries should have the qualifications of an elder (1 Timothy and Titus) under the discipling of biblical elders from their local church. One of the preacher’s said that “biblical elders equates a biblical church, a biblical church equates biblical missionaries, biblical missionaries equates to biblical missions”
We must preach the Gospel - “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17
On a final note, I would like to share a statement mentioned by one of the preachers and I quote “Zeal and passion driven missions will never work unless controlled or governed by the Word of God”
Therefore let us work together, encouraging one another to go even deeper in the study of the Word of God.
