Missions at Riverland Hills
Missions is the heartbeat of Riverland Hills. Having a living faith means we are committed to love the world with the gospel. Missions is how we strive to impact our community, our nation and the world. This is the heart of Jesus’ command to share the gospel “in Jerusalem (community), in all Judea and Samaria (nation), and to the end of the earth (world)” Acts 1:8.
Why We Go
What Jesus Did
We go because Jesus paid the debt for our sins. “He [Jesus] is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2).
What Jesus Said
We go because missions is not optional. King Jesus commands all of His followers to “go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:20).
What Jesus Gave
We go because Jesus has given His followers supernatural power and authority to share the gospel. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses…” (Acts 1:8)
What the World Needs
We go because of the overwhelming need. Over 4.2 billion people have yet to be reached with the gospel. “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (Luke 10:2).
