We are not commanded to mission, the New Testament has a much more profound understanding of mission than that. The New Testament understands that we are co-commissioned; God and us together in partnership. We are his hands, his feet, his voice to a broken world. Jesus gave us the great commission saying : “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mt 28:19 and 20) The challenge for each and every Christian is this: “What is God calling ME to in mission and ministry, through His Word, by the power of His Holy Spirit?”
The Missions we support

Provides a track for Christians from around the world to serve in China short- and long-term
Strengthens, resources and equips the Chinese church with Bibles and Christian teaching materials
Supports the people of China through informed prayer and through mercy projects amongst the poor
