Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19 NLT)
As a church for Cambridge and Boston, we are all about reaching out to those around us in very practical and tangible ways. This is not one of our “programs” but a lifestyle – living a real faith outside the four walls of a building. Whether it’s serving our city, caring for our neighbors and co-workers, helping to start churches in the USA or partnering with people to reach the nations of the world, we desire to equip people to do three things:
“Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’” (Matthew 9:37-38)
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’ He said, ‘Go and tell this people…’” (Isaiah 6:8-9)
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV 1984)
