Our Great Commission

  • Mark 16:15Go ye (as you go) into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.  (17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; (18) …they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
  • Matthew 10:1“He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. (7) As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is near. (8) Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.  Freely you have received, freely give.”
  • Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
