Purpose

MissionGO takes the Good News of Jesus Christ to all people. We seek for everyone to know and experience His life-changing work.

MissionGO encourages and serves missionaries who are called by the Holy Spirit to serve the Lord as He leads them.


Mission statement

Evangelical in every way, MissionGO (Global Outreach Mission) is committed to spreading the Gospel of the grace of God as revealed in the Word of God. We enjoy fellowship with Christians of like faith and cross many denominational lines for the primary objective of winning souls for Jesus Christ.


Statement of faith

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ who became man without ceasing to be God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We believe salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe the Church, which is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of the present age. We believe in the establishment and continuance of local churches for worship, edification, and fellowship.

We believe it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and by word the truths of Holy Scripture and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside this Biblical definition of the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual or otherwise is immoral and therefore sin. (Gen. 2:24; Ex. 20:14,17, 22:19; Lev. 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16: Mt. 19: 4-6, 9, Rom. 1:18-31; 1 Cor. 6:9-10, 15-20; 1 Tim. 1:8-8-11; Jude 7). We believe that God created the human race male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one's birth is immoral and therefore sin (Gen. 1:27, Deut. 22:5).

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity (Mark 12:28-31, Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with the Scripture nor the doctrines of MissionGO.
