 Commission

We've all been challenged with a commission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ 


Pillar of Fire Ministry's Mission Statement (ministerial commission), Vision and Purpose  are one and the same, and that is based on Matthew 28:19 which declares: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."  Simply put in today's language--our mission statement is:

Our Mission :

          As God’s “Pillar of Fire” led the captives through the darkness of bondage to the light of freedom; we will lead from spiritual darkness to light through sound preaching, teaching and living example.

   

Our Vision:

          A home/facility for babies born addicted.

          To be an integral part of the community actively involved in bringing people back to God and His church; thus lifting the level of morality and righteousness

 

Our Purpose:

          To bridge the gap between the churched and unchurched; believers and non-believers; and the saved and unsaved by winning souls to the Kingdom of God by witnessing, teaching, training and Bible Study.

 

There's a wonderful story in the Book of Jonah that probably all of us can identify with--running from our calling; our commission. Jonah was called and commissioned to do a specific task that was distasteful to him because of who & what was involved in the commission--sound familiar? I'd like to share a poem that is appropriately titled; "Commissioned".

Give us a watchword for the hour,
A thrilling word, a word of power;
A battle cry, a flaming breath,
A call to conquest or to death;
A word to rouse the church from rest,
To heed the Master's high behest.
The call is given, ye hosts arise,
The watchword is EVANGELIZE!
To fallen men, a dying race,
Make known the gift of gospel grace.
The world that now in darkness lies,
O church of Christ, EVANGELIZE!

We are all called to take the Good News to the dying world. Jonah was commissioned to go to Nineveh and preach repentance . . . but, he didn't feel the people of Nineveh were worth salvation. His disobedience almost cost, not only him, but a ship full of sailors their lives because God sent a violent storm to seek him out. He was eventually thrown overboard where he was swallowed up by a great fish (Jonah 1:17).  How many of us today are literally in the fish's belly?
