At Clifton, we desire to see God glorified through the spread of the gospel to all the peoples of the world. From the very beginning, God’s plan of salvation has been to bless all peoples through the saving work of Jesus Christ (Gen 12:3; Gal 3:13-14). Furthermore, Jesus has commanded His followers to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:19). Therefore, we believe every Christian has a part to play in spreading the gospel to those people who have never heard it. We do this either by going or by faithfully sending and supporting those who do. As a church, we are committed to hastening the spread of the gospel to all peoples by:
- Praying that God will call out from our local church men and women who will go to the various people of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Sending those whom God calls from among us in a manner worthy of Him by confirming their gifting for missionary service, equipping them with a clear vision of the gospel and the church, and supporting them with our prayers, money, and regular correspondence.
- Learning more about God’s work among the various peoples of the world.
- Praying regularly for the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ among the various peoples of the world, especially among those peoples who have yet to hear.
We have sent out many folks from our congregation to minister in various places around the globe. We still think of them as extensions of the ministry of Clifton, and this is reflected in strategy to support and care for our missionaries through prayer, finances, correspondence, and personal visits.
