Every year around this time we take a week to remind ourselves of the importance of partnering with others for the advancement of the gospel. In this week's sermon we look at several passages in the Bible (Genesis 12, Exodus 19, & 1 Peter 2) and see how God has always used his people to make himself and his ways known in the world. The challenge for us is to be faithful in proclaiming the greatness of God in our world today (cf. 1 Peter 2:9-10).
Why should Christians support missionaries? Find out why and the blessings that come to those who partner with missionaries for the advancment of the gospel.

On March 4th we emphasized missions and the need to make disciples of all nations. We studied Luke 24:44-49 and discovered that Jesus appeals to the Old Testament when He commissions His disciples. This means that missions and making disciples isn't simply a command that Jesus tacks on to the end of the Gospels but is part of a theme that runs throughout the Bible.

_Every year around the holidays Southern Baptist Churches take up the Lottie Moon Christmas offering to help support our missionaries around the world. This week we started in Genesis 3 and did a quick run through the Bible and saw that Jesus is the promised offspring who will defeat Satan and undo the curse. Finally, as Christians we are given the task of taking this good news to the world.

Every year around the holidays Southern Baptist Churches take up the Lottie Moon Christmas offering to help support our missionaries around the world. To kick off this time of giving for foreign missions we are doing a two-part series on missions. This week we looked at why we need missions. We went to Genesis 1-3 and saw how sin and rebellion entered the world and how the only solution to this problem is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
