Jesus’ final recorded words while on earth were these instructions: “you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, HCSV) His words describe our mission today. He told His disciples to start at home – Jerusalem, and Judea; next, He told them to expand their horizons and go to Samaria, and then to go “to the ends of the earth”. In spite of limited resources, these brave men and women accepted the challenge. In today’s privileged world of international travel and accessibility, how can sit back and do any less?
Our focus is first in our own city that we call home, being a “city set on a hill” right here in Chattanooga. However, God has opened doors for us to go across the globe sharing His love and the message of salvation. In the last few years, our members have ministered in Belize, Honduras, Ecuador, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Israel, Germany, and Thailand (to minister from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar, as well). In nearly all of these nations, we have an ongoing relationship with local pastors and church bodies through our Dream Centrals. In addition to our involvement in these nations, we actively support missions in every part of the world through the Church of God World Missions Department. We invite you to join us in God’s plan to reach every corner of the globe!
