Why do we do Missions?
Simple. Jesus commanded us to. In the Great Commission, found in Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus told his disciples “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…” A very clear direction for all who follow Jesus. In our mission to follow the Great Commission, Lone Oak FBC uses the strategy exemplified in Acts 1:8 to carry the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world by being “witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).” In our world:
We are not alone in these efforts. Through the Cooperative Program, Southern Baptist Churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of their respective state convention and the Southern Baptist Convention missions and ministries. Above the efforts of the KBC and SBC, churches across the country also support their own short term mission teams carrying the word far and wide just as Jesus instructed.
