The Mission of Missions

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witness to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.  (Acts 1:8, NKJV)

The people of First Norfolk have taken God’s great call to live the mission as something greater than a romantic notion or a warm, fuzzy feeling while traveling internationally. They have embraced the great command to love God and love others and in doing so, they have accepted the challenge to live the mission as they are mobilized by the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

We pray that you are able to see more than a gathering of events, journeys, and overall good deeds.  We pray that you find a fellowship of people (aka “the church”) who are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ as Acts 1:8 calls them to do. As you read, connect the dots of ministry needs with those who are called to serve (every missionary follower of Christ).
