The mission of the church is missions. And the mission of missions is the church.

Missions is the job of every local church. The purpose of the church’s existence is to go out with the gospel, making disciples of all the peoples of the earth. We exist for God and for his glory. 

Missions at Christ Church is deeply established in our local church’s mission to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission in the spirit of the Great Commandment.

This produces missional giving, investing, preaching, teaching, and ministries of compassion that inspire hearts and lives to be fully surrendered to the global Great Commission. The result is a passion to reach the whitened harvest fields of near and far-off places and a desire to partner with those who catch the vision to be laborers in his harvest.

We’re committed in our communities and around the world as we learn, pray, give, and go.

Global Missions
The ultimate end is that the name of Christ might be praised among every people group so that the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. We’re committed to local churches around the world and partnerships who are committed to disciple-making and church planting.

Local Missions
In our communities and city, we have been commanded to make disciples and that command will most naturally and consistently play out right where we live, in the context of our immediate surroundings. In this way, we’re committed to show compassion as we make disciples and church planting where we live.
