I care about missions because…

  1. I care about worship.
  2. I care about people-groups.
  3. I care about compassion for people.
  4. Jesus instructed us to earnestly pray for more missionaries to be sent out.
  5. I believe in hell.
  6. I care about people’s quality of life.
  7. I care about Jesus’ return.
  8. I care about Jesus’ mandate to the apostles, the great commission.
  9. I believe in and love Jesus’ Church.
  10. I care about training disciples of Jesus to maturity.
  11. I care about local missions.
  12. The God of the Bible is a missionary.
  13. The Gospel is “news” that, by definition, demands to be heralded.
  14. I care about living a life of weight, meaning, and significance.
