WLA Living Word Christian Center believes that the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-21) is the priority responsibility for the church today. We believe that God will provide the resources necessary to fulfill His commandment. We as believers need to have a willingness of heart to go and do.

Many people think that in order to obey the Great Commission, they must pack up everything they own and travel to some distant, foreign land. Although there is a need for people to go to foreign countries, it is also as close as your backyard, neighborhood, school or workplace.

Another myth is that you have to meet certain criteria in order to do this type of work. That is simply not true!

The word of God never gave us a checklist of things we must attain before spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Young, old, fat, thin, educated scholars, high school graduates, housewives and even our young people; all play a major role in the Great Commission.

God uses all who are willing to obey him to reach people who have need of His salvation. For example: A young person of 15 years of age will be able to speak and relate to his/her peers, that is something that a 45 years old would not most likely do. A person of 60 years will be able to minister to someone of their generation better than a young person of 20. God needs all of us, exactly where we are, to obey Him with a willing heart. We should never look to mission work as putting numbers on a score card of good works. God’s Word says some plant, some water, but God gives the increase.

There is an old saying ” Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he will feed his family for a lifetime.” It is our position that this is a very wise and true statement. The most effective way to impact a community with the Word of God is to train the Pastors who live in those communities.

Please pray for us to continue to seek God’s will in our mission work and for His divine protection.
