World Missions

Here at CLC we believe the Lord has given the church today a very clear and concise call to action for the world in this Age of Grace. In Matthew 28 the word of God says:

18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Where God commissions He also provides the necessary resources. As we look in the scriptures we see his provision for this work in Acts 1:8:

8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Through our World Missions we are fulfilling the call to “Therefore go” with the power of God to “the ends of the earth”. We support missionaries in several foreign lands and we send teams into many countries. Currently we have a large work taking place in Central America. We are co-laboring with OpenEyes Ministries in Nicaragua and Honduras. Our CLC leadership team is teaching leadership principles and developmental techniques in Costa Rica and we are in the process of establishing a similar leadership outreach in Guatemala.

Members of our church have been to several countries in Africa, to the Asian rim area, to Scotland and the Ukraine. We are currently working through the process of getting licensed to take teams into Cuba.

At CLC we feel very strongly that some are called to minister in the local community. We feel some are called to reach out into a larger geographical area. And we feel some are called to go to the world. The bottom line is that all are called to be missionaries for the Lord. It is our desire to connect each member of the body of Christ to step into their destiny with the calling of the Lord on their life. As we prepare teams it is the hope of making this destiny connection and continues to motivate us as we seek to serve God. Please come join with us as we answer the call to “go”.
