Mission & Missionaries – ACTS 1-2

Prepared by Ps Steve Jones
The Temple, Penygroes

The foundation of the early church is built upon Jesus’ Acts 1:8 declaration to His disciples. They had no knowledge whatsoever about the impact their obedience would have as they sought to fulfil His command, but today we see across the universal church the great work that continues from that beginning.

Mission has always been at the heart of my ministry, though actually becoming a missionary is far from my thinking! The text reminds us that mission begins at home – Jerusalem. We may not all be called to the nations but we are called to mission starting at home, & for that Christ gives us power.

A missionary to the nations may be our destiny but even the first disciples began at home!
