World Missions

God’s heart beats for the nations. From the Abrahamic covenant through the Great Commission, God’s desire has been to redeem all those who come to Him in sincere faith. The study of world missions shows how believers in the past had to overcome boundaries of geography, language, and culture to spread the gospel worldwide. This topic of study provides not only important theological and cross-cultural insights, but often helps with practical tips on how to be an effective missionary at home and abroad.
