19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
In recent years it has become popular for many Christians to take mission trips abroad. This is commendable service; however, it is more and more apparent that we have a growing mission field right here in Toledo. Thousands and thousands are living and dying without the knowledge of a Savior. They don’t know that they are created to live forever and that Jesus came to live, and die, for them.
It is our desire to do our best to fulfill the Great Commission quoted above from the book of Matthew.
John (New International Version)
34"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
Matthew 22:37-39 (New International Version)
37"…Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. "
We have a dream of a place where the hurting, the hopeless, the discouraged, the depressed, the frustrated and the confused can find love, acceptance, guidance and encouragement. We have the dream of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with thousands of residents in LucasCounty. We have the dream of people growing together in spiritual maturity through Bible studies, and fellowship loving, laughing and learning together, understanding God's wonderful plan and living life to its greatest potential.
