At Eastbrook Church we take seriously Jesus’ charge in Mathew 28:18:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age.”
As a result, we are actively engaged in raising up and supporting individuals and families willing to go to Africa, the Far East, Central Asia, the Middle East, Central America, and Eastern Europe. As they go, they teach English, make movies, translate the Bible (and teach it), start businesses, develop agricultural projects, establish schools, and provide health care. If they are working where a church has already been established, they serve the church and its larger community. They also serve as bridges between those national churches and Eastbrook so that we can work together. In everything, they seek to glorify God through their work and to give everyone they meet an opportunity to hear the good news about Jesus.
As for us back home, we pray. We visit our church partners. We provide them with financial support as needed. We organize teams to work alongside them for a week or two. We look for new ways and new opportunities to serve.
At Eastbrook, we go to the nations because we believe God has commanded it. We also do it because we want to love as God loves. With that goal in mind, it’s not enough to proclaim and embody Jesus Christ in our city; we also need to proclaim and embody Him in the world.
