America is no longer a Christian nation with only 17.5% of Americans attending church any given Sunday. The US is now the third largest mission field in the world. That is why we have been proactive in carrying the gospel to new regions of our state through planting churches and promoting creative methods of evangelism.
In correlation with the Church of God's International FINISH Commitment we have adopted the following strategy for the next several years:
The FINISH COMMITMENT
To FINISH the Great Commission, we must FIND the lost and disenfranchised, including the unreached people groups around the world, engaging them in love and winning them to Christ.
To FINISH the Great Commission, we must INTERCEDE, making prayer and worship the highest privilege and greatest responsibility of every believer.
To FINISH the Great Commission, we must NETWORK servant leaders of all generations, including pastors, ministers, and laity for shared ministry engagement.
To FINISH the Great Commission, we must INVEST our resources by strengthening the church through strategic partnership for care, church planting, education, leadership development, and discipleship.
To FINISH the Great Commission, we must SEND disciples to all nations, actively sharing the Gospel through Holy Spirit empowerment.
As a vibrant movement, the CHURCH OF GOD must commit NOW to reap a world HARVEST with a global church focus on the Great Commission Finish.
