TEXT: EPHESIANS 2:1-10; MARK 16:15-16
INTRODUCTION: The Missions Annual Program (MAP) of the church for 2018 with the theme "Unto Good Works" holds from the 14th of March to the 18th of March 2018. Missions is the sharing of the gospel with people-groups by crossing cultural, language
andreligious barriers. It goes beyond geo-political barriers. This year’s event focuses on breaking these barriers using our profession and humanitarian services as entry points. The great commission is more urgent now than when we first believed. This task involves many roles, tools and gifts. The gifts God has endowed us with should be used to further this cause. May this year’s event equip us with the skills needed to fulfil this God given mandate in Jesus name. Amen.
