"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." ~Hebrews 11:6

My Commission

My Commission from Branch Hill Baptist Church


"Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature"  (Mark 16:15)  Before Jesus ascended into heaven he told his disciples they were to be witnesses in "Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost."  Those four areas were mentioned from local to worldwide.  Today many churches have all but abandoned the idea of local evangelism.  Many churches that are involved in getting missionaries on the foreign fields have all but forgotten their local responsibility.  Someone once commented that you can't even spell "gospel" without the word "go."  My Commission is our attempt to take the gospel beyond the walls of our church.  Over the past 3 years we have placed nearly 20,000 pieces of gospel literature on the doors in our area.  We call it My Commission because we believe this labor must be personal.  Church ministries are only made possible by individuals that have a core belief that "they" are responsible to take the gospel.  

My Commission also embraces the idea that everyone can do something.  People come out on My Commission night and make visits while some put material together and others distribute that material.  We even have a place for our youngest; Kids Komission involves the church children through teen years in ministry in nursing homes and being a blessing through song, crafts, and interaction with the residence.

My Commission offers opportunity to those who wish to take their level of service beyond where they are and in line with what Christ wants.
