It’s been said, “God had only one Son and He was a missionary”. We can do no less and no other. If we follow Jesus, we must be involved with His mission.
But why “mission” and not “missions”? Because ECB believes that while there are many ways to fulfill the mission, and many ways to talk about it, in the end there is only one mission – to know Christ and make Him known; to make disciples of Jesus out of all nations. In short, our mission is to establish the Kingdom of God on earth by expanding His reign in the hearts of people. ECB fulfills that mission with many different strategies and various groups that fit different personalities. But in the end, all of us are called to a single mission. Regarding the methods, there are options; regarding participation, there is no choice (John 9:4,5; 20:21).
