The English word mission comes from the Latin word for send. In each of the verses to be mentioned there is the concept of being sent. In Matthew 28:19, “…Go Ye”; Acts 1:8, “ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth; and II Corinthians 5:20, “…we are ambassadors” (for someone sent) Jesus not only calls us to come to Him, but He Commissions us to go for Him.
Jesus states this in John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent Me, even so send I you” (KJV). This call to missions that Jesus charged the early Christians with is a charge that we of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina are bound by and have been actively engaged in since 1867. We invite you to join, participate in and support all the activities our Convention.
“Then said Jesus to them ….as My Father hath sent Me, even so I send You” John 20:21
