As believers, we have a glorious future. We can draw strength from the hope of residing with the Lord and worshiping Him in perfect peace, unity, and rest for all of eternity. Unbelievers, however, do not know this kind of hope. As the return of Christ draws closer, sin and rebellion will intensify and darken our societies and cultures. These tumultuous days will end in the Lord’s judgment and wrath for so many. However, while there is still life and breath, the possibility for repentance and salvation remains. The gospel must be proclaimed to the ends of the earth so that people can have the same hope we hold.
Our Grace Ministries International (GMI) missionaries are burdened by the spiritual need of the world and they are confident in the transforming work of the gospel. They are motivated by Paul’s words to the Romans, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16). These faithful men and women see the hourglass that stands before all mankind, so they devote themselves to run the race for the sake of the gospel. Transplanting their lives to the far corners of the earth, they look to serve the Lord by making disciples of all the nations.
Tirelessly working in their local churches, our GMI missionaries preach the Word in all seasons, equipping, and edifying the saints and ministering to the lost. With boldness, they champion the truth in the battle against false religion and deception, sowing seeds of righteousness for the Lord to grow as He chooses. They live by the words of Romans 10:14, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching.” Our GMI missionaries live for the Great Commission and the saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
For more than ten years, Grace Church has promoted Faith Promise, a wonderful campaign through which our congregation can pray and give to the ministry needs of our faithful missionaries. Funds from Faith Promise help send new missionaries to the field, support our affiliated training centers, provide for missionary budget deficits and help advance the gospel ministry efforts of our missionary families around the globe.
We are thankful for your prayerful consideration of Faith Promise. May we be inspired by the transforming power of the gospel to support the work of our beloved co-laborers.
