Connecting people with the Life that counts for eternity!

Missions

Jesus' final marching orders to his followers were, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8 NIV). This command to take the Good News to the world begins where we are and goes to the extremes of the earth. One person has described it this way: 
  • the near people are our assignment—"Jerusalem";
  • the neighboring people are our assignment—"Judea";
  • the neglected people are our assignment—"Samaria" (Samaria represents the people of your worst prejudice); and,
  • the next people are our assignment—"unto the uttermost part of the earth."
At Crest, we support missions through our prayers, our purses and our persons. Opportunities to be engaged in mission actions locally and overseas are offered. For more information check out these pages.
