Supporting Mission

So what can i do to help support or be part of IPC missions?

First and foremost: Give yourself to the Lord. (2 Corinthians 8:5).

If you are not a Christian, we thank you for your kind intention to come and attend our church services.
Please don’t feel obliged to give when the offering bags are passed around.
While we appreciate what you’re trying to do to help, mission is the task of Christians or the church.
Do continue to investigate the Christian message, and it is our prayer that you would know who the Lord Jesus is and what he came to do.

If you are a Christian, let’s give ourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because we know that our labour in the Lord will not be in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)

Secondly: Pray.

We know that it is mainly God who works in the heart of men, to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purposes. (Philippians 2:13)
We, Christians, should come to God to ask, knowing that he is more than willing to act. (Matthew 7:7-12, Luke 18:1-8)

Thirdly: Give

Plan so that you can be generous. (2 Corinthians 9:3-5).

Our goal is equality, as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.” (2 Corinthians 8:15)

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6)

Committee of Management produced the Annual General Meeting report which recorded how much the church gave and budgeted for mission.

Finally: Go

What’s more exciting than partnering with those working in the field? Get to experience it firsthand ourselves! Especially if we have the time, energy and opportunity, taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8)

Otherwise, the mission committee is always looking for people, from different congregations, to help in organisation (organising prayer, recruiting people, raising mission awareness, follow up, planning, documentation, book review, website etc.). Could it be said that for every 1 out there, there are 10 supporting at the base? 🙂
