“The earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:9b).
This is our mandate and greatest joy. For this we live as a community of healthy emerging congregations to make Christ known and loved, to be worshipped and served by the Ch’ol and Nahuatl people in one great chorus along with all the nations and families of the earth.
We see every member of the church empowered with gifts of the Holy Spirit to serve their neighbor.
We see the people of God by the power of the Holy Spirit transcending barriers of race, culture, class, political ideology and denomination giving an integral witness to the power of Christ’s love, death and resurrection thereby transforming individuals, communities, and nations.
We see unreached people trusting in Christ, becoming disciples, leaders and missionaries.
We see formerly unreached people reaching the remaining unreached peoples.
We see churches being planted at the ends of the earth where Christ is treasured, His Word is being taught by well-trained indigenous pastors and people are being transformed by the power of God.
We see the promise of God and the work of Christ fulfilled. We see things so wondrous that they can’t be explained.
“Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days- You would not believe if you were told….
For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay” (Habakkuk 1:5; 2:3).
