“Helping people joyfully make Jesus Christ their treasure!”
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
The VISION of what we want our international ministry to result in:
“Vibrant indigenous churches where people are joyfully treasuring Jesus, genuinely loving each
other, actively reaching the people in their “world” and around the world with the Gospel, and are
being passionately equipped to do the work of the ministry.”
We as a church seek to do all things rooted in the Word of God, for the glory of His name and for the transformation of people’s lives. When we think about what part The Field Church should play in the area of global missions, we are driven by the following core convictions.
Conviction #1 Our God is a missionary God and his desire is to see his glory spread among all peoples.
Conviction #2 Missions is defined as Great Commission fulfillment.
Conviction #3 We are called to a wartime lifestyle for the sake of going and sending.
Conviction #4 The local church should be active in sending out, sustaining and caring
for its members serving cross-culturally.
Conviction #5 Our aim is not to persuade everyone to become a missionary, but to help
everyone become a world Christian.
Conviction #6 Domestic Ministries are the goal of Frontier Missions.
Conviction #7 Priority should be placed on Unreached and Forgotten peoples.
Conviction #8 All Short-term work should have a Long-term view.
Conviction #9 Prayer is a vital work of international missions.
Conviction #10 God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him; and our satisfaction in Him is greatest when it expands to embrace others, even when this involves suffering.
Conviction #11 God’s purpose to be praised among all the nations cannot fail. It is an
absolutely certain promise. It is going to happen.
