The final earthly words spoken by Jesus, is by far the single most significant speech in human history. This is called the “Great Commission” and sets the parameters of our service to Him.
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. ~ Matthew 28:18-20
It’s a call for every member of God’s family. We will have other life tasks, but our primary work is to fulfill the Great Commission- in our home, in our personal life, in our neighborhood, in our workplace, in our community, nation and beyond. We have been entrusted to share the Good News of Jesus! This is a privilege each of us shares, as well as a responsibility we must take personally.Micah 6:8 is the driving force behind our commitment to fulfilling the Great Commission. “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Northview Community Church is committed to:
- Partnering with other ministries in fighting injustice on behalf of those who cannot fight for themselves.
- Bringing hope and healing to those who are in need through mercy ministries.
- Sharing the Good News of Jesus with a world that so desperately needs Him.
We seek to accomplish this through much prayer, effort and strategic partnerships and make a real difference in Abbotsford, Canada and the World! What is God stirring in your heart to do?
