Mission is at the center of what PURC is all about. After all, if God is a missionary God, we ought to be a missionary people. We believe that every church ought to be devoted to bringing the gospel to the world (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8). This gets at the heart of her God-ordained calling to be a light to the nations (Matthew 5:13-16, I Peter 2:9,10).
We believe mission occurs in many ways. It occurs through the preaching of the gospel (Romans 10:17), God-centered and evangelistic worship (I Corinthians 14:25), prayer (Colossians 4:2-4), informal conversation (Colossians 4:5,6, I Peter 3:15), deeds of love (Acts 2:42-47, 4:32-35), caring for the poor (Deuteronomy 14:28,29), Through these and other ways we bear witness to God’s grace and Christ’s kingdom rule in our lives.
