SPRINGDALE, Ark. (BP) — Reaching the world for Christ is the vision and passion of our Southern Baptist Convention. Our grand task to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in the world and make disciples of all the nations is what our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is all about.
Share this with your church
“Because of Who He Is” is an inspirational video you can share in your worship services, small groups, or even the lobby of your church. As stated on the International Mission Board website, your giving enables missionaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among the unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.
You and your church
This is why each one of us personally, and our churches collectively, must pray diligently and ask God what He wants us to give to reaching the world for Christ. The need has never been greater. The call is clear to advance the Gospel whether it is through planting churches, ministries of compassion, or equipping the next generation.
Join Jeana and me — give more than ever before
This year, Jeana and I are giving more than ever before to our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. I am challenging our Cross Church family to join us. In this desperate hour, I appeal to every one of us to give more than ever before to our international missions offering.
Now is the time to come together
Now is the time to come together to increase our giving to send missionaries around the globe. Yes, our International Mission Board has experienced an undeniable setback in the last few months due to our financial situation. However, this reset is not regress. Our Southern Baptist Convention is committed more than ever before to reaching the world for Christ.
Now is the time to come together and make Jesus’ name known to all the nations!
Because of who He is we must find a way together to declare His name to all the nations. Let’s rise up and give in an unprecedented way to our 2015 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. Now is the time to reach the world for Christ.
