OUR MANDATE IS CLEAR

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20

Jesus did not ask us to go.  He did not ask us if we wanted to go.  This is His command.  This is required of all who follow our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And even still, Jesus knew that the harvest would be plentiful and that the workers would be few.

RFA Church exists to build up and send out Spirit-filled agents of local and global transformation.  Believers, including missionaries, around the world are praying to the Lord of the harvest for more workers.  Our desire is for the answers to those prayers to come out of RFA Church.

PRAY

“You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed.” – A. J. Gordon

This statement is true for all of us.  It’s true for the school teacher.  It’s true for the parent at home with children.  It’s true for the missionary serving abroad.  Throughout the New Testament we are urged to pray for one another and to pray without ceasing.  As we answer our call to prayer we will see prayer became the conduit through which the power of God flows to change people and circumstances.

Missionaries need a constant, strong covering of prayer.  A fully funded budget cannot serve as a substitute for prayer for our missionary families, their ministries, and the unreached peoples they serve.  Ask the Lord for a heart to continually pray for our missionaries.  You don’t know their names?  You don’t know their needs?  Take the next step and contact Jon & Cathy Miller  to find out how you, your family, or your small group can commit to praying for one of our missionaries.

GIVE

“For God so loved the world that He GAVE …” – John 3:16

Because RFA Church so loves the world we give.  Our adults give.  Our youth give.  Our children give.  The RFA Church family currently supports over 70 missionaries and more than 20 local and global ministries serving in nearly two dozen countries including the United States.

GO

What are you waiting for?  Jesus Christ’s Great Commission is non-negotiable.  Billions of people in this world are on a path to eternal separation from their Creator and punishment in hell.  If you are not one of them, “It is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9.  These truths should be enough to compel us to take the Gospel to the nations.  So why do so many of us not go?  The reasons are many, and not a one is acceptable.

Pray to our Heavenly Father and ask Him to give you a heart for the unreached.  Pray for those who have not heard the Gospel.  Pray for those who don’t have access to a Bible.  Pray for our missionaries.  Begin to give.  Give obediently.  Give sacrificially.  Give joyfully.  And somewhere in the midst of the praying and the giving, a burning irresistible desire to go will be born in your spirit.  What then?  Connect with me and let me share with you about RFA’s short term opportunities.  Let me share with you how you can become an answer to someone’s prayer for more workers in our Lord’s harvest field.
