Our mission is to reach people and help them walk with God – all people, from our community to the ends of the earth. Missions is not a separate ministry or program at PC3; it’s the essence of who we are as believers in Jesus Christ.
As our relationship with God grows, we develop His love for people. A natural expression of that love is the desire to serve others, and an excitement about sharing the joy and hope we have in Jesus Christ to those who haven’t yet heard or don’t understand.
Jesus told His followers that we are to love God first and love our neighbors as ourselves. We believe that love is most naturally shown when we sacrificially serve our local community. We seek to partner with organizations that are helping the most pressing physical & spiritual needs in our community.
Jesus told His followers to “go” and make disciples of all nations. We are privileged to work alongside and support some great individuals & organizations that are living out that command. One way we support our partners is by taking short-term trips. These trips all have the goal of assisting and encouraging them as they strive to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who haven’t heard.
For each person going to serve on the mission field, senders are also needed back home. Romans 10:13-15 makes it clear that both ‘goers’ and ‘senders’ are necessary to fully complete our mission.
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 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? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10:13-15
We know that not everyone can go on short-term mission trips but we do believe that everyone can be a sender. It offers a great opportunity for all people to connect with what PC3 is doing around the world, no matter your age, financial status, health concerns or even spiritual walk. Senders play an important role in missions by providing the ‘goers’ with moral, logistical, financial, prayer, communication, and re-entry support. It is a great first step in engaging in overseas missions!
