Believing that God “has given to us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Cor. 5:18-20), and that our Lord Jesus Christ has commanded us to “go and make disciples of all the nations” (Matt. 28:18-20), it is Multnomah’s conviction that all believers are to participate in God’s global purposes. The annual missions conference exists:
To draw believers into a deeper love for the Savior (Matt. 22:37; Luke 10:38-43),
To promote a more pure and genuine love for the world’s peoples (Matt. 22:37; James 1:27),
To expose believers to the options for personal stewardship of God’s grace appropriate to their Holy Spirit-given interests, guidance, and gifting (1 Pet.4:10-11), and
To encourage a more joyous and passionate engagement through grateful service (James 2:17; 2 Cor. 5:14-15) in what God is doing globally.
