We know that the church is supposed to be about Christ's mission on earth - preaching the gospel, making disciples, baptizing and teaching them. But have you considered that it is God who is the true Missionary? The story of Christmas shows how God's missionary heart sent Jesus to be our Savior. You can share that message of hope this Christmas with your congregation.
This model sermon series by Pastor John Duncan explores God's Missionary Heart through four messages.
- Joy to the World - Isaiah 9
- Unhappy Holidays at Christmas - Revelation 12
- The Angels Announce the Good News - Luke 1
- The Days After Christmas and A New Year - Colossians 1
