Why Missions?

As Christians, we have a tendency to form God in our image. If we're a business executive, we love the passages in Scripture where God appears as the consumate CEO. If we're blue-collar workers, we remind people that Jesus was a carpenter. If we are impoverished, God is a revolutionary. As one author said, "The gods of the Persians always look like Persians." 

Involvment in foreign missions is vital because it forces us to expand our view of who God is. It expands our view of what God is doing in the world. 

Most of us need constant reminders that God is bigger than we think. The less exposed we are to what God is doing outside our own life, the smaller our view of God becomes.
