We at Redeeming Grace Church support missionaries because we, as Christians, are called to proclaim the Gospel for salvation. There are many in the world who are still dead in trespasses and sin (Eph. 2:1), and life is given by none other than Jesus (Jn. 17:2; Rom. 4:17; 1 John 5:11), through the preaching of the Gospel (Rom. 10:14-17), which alone is the power of God unto salvation (Rom. 1:16).
We also support missionaries because Jesus has appointed us to be His witnesses in all the earth (Acts 1:8). Additionally, Jesus’ final command in the book of Matthew is, “Make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19). This passage in Matthew is known as the Great Commission, which not only commands us to make disciples, but also explains how this is to be done: by going, baptizing, and teaching.
Therefore, we live as Jesus’ witnesses and make disciples by:
1. Going out into the world: whether to the house next door or to the continent next door (or beyond)
2. Baptizing in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, for salvation comes from God alone.
3. Teaching people to observe all that Jesus has commanded as revealed in the Bible.
We currently support the Kraft family so they can serve Puebla Bible Seminary and do orphan care in Mexico. Please keep them in your prayers, as they proclaim the Gospel and seek to make disciples of Christ.

We also support 9Marks Ministries because 9Marks exists to equip church leaders with a biblical vision and practical resources for displaying God’s glory to the nations through healthy churches.
