Mission

What is mission?

  • God is a missionary God:  "For God so loved the world that he gave his only son" (John 3:16).
  • Jesus had a mission:  "I have come to seek and save the lost" (Luke 19:10).
  • Jesus gave his followers a mission:  "Go therefore and make discioples of all nations" (Matthew 28:18).
  • Jesus expects his followers to be involved in mission:  "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men" (Mark 1:17).
  • Centrepoint has a mission:  God has called us to be a Spirit-empowered community of believers helping people become fully devoted followers of Christ.

So perhaps the most simple way to think about mission is this:

  • Join the Father in reaching the world
  • Through the gospel of his Son Jesus
  • In the power of the Holy Spirit
  • And all in the context of living out the Christian life in committed community (John 13:35).

As we do that - God's mission will take us to people all over Bathgate and West Lothian and ultimately to places all over the world.
