Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
EHBC’s Statement of Belief, Article 13: Evangelism & Missions

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations… to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.
Working Definitions for this message:

Evangelism: Teaching the Gospel with the aim to persuade

Missions: Evangelism that takes the Gospel across ethnic, linguistic, and geographic boundaries, with the intention of gathering churches and teaching them to obey everything that Jesus commanded.
Today's Points:

1) Every believer is called to engage in evangelism.

2) Every believing church is called to engage in missions.

3) The power and motivation for both evangelism and missions is the Gospel.

BF&M 2000: Article XI: Evangelism & Missions

“...The new birth of man’s spirit by God’s Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others...”
“…Our job is to proclaim salvation, not produce it. We’re called to deliver a message to people; God’s the one who delivers people from sin.”

—Isaac Adams, What If I’m Discouraged In My Evangelism?, Crossway
“Throughout history, Christians have built schools, established hospitals, fed the poor, and cultivated community structures that have helped people flourish. But those larger social goods are not the aim of Christian missions, as if knowing Jesus is merely the means to more important social goods. Christ commissioned us to preach the Gospel, calling sinners to repentance. We must ‘make disciples.’ In fact, sometimes, faithful preaching may mean communicating the Gospel with no immediate discernible effect at all.”

—Mark Collins, How Can I Support International Missions?, Crossway
Things we can do to be engaged in missions:

Share the Gospel.
Learn about missionaries.
Pray for missionaries.
Give to support missions.
Go if God is leading you to do so.
Inform others about your experiences and learning about missions.
Mobilize others in missions by asking others to serve with you.
“Our power in drawing men to Christ springs chiefly from the fullness of our personal joy in Him, and the nearness of our personal communion with Him.”

—Horatius Bonar, Words to Winners of Souls, P&R
For discussion this week:

-- If you're a believer, who told you about Jesus? When was that?
-- If you're not a believer in Jesus, why not? What's holding you back?
-- How can we develop a passion for telling others about Jesus here, and support those who are telling others about Jesus throughout the world?
