Jesus instructed all Christians to spread his good news about salvation through him to all nations so that they could have everlasting life. Evangelism is an important part of being a Christian and a commandment from Christ. Witnessing to others about Christ and how our lives have been changed by following Christ is a powerful way to evangelize and to bring others to Christ.
Missions work involves helping others according to the principles outlined by God and Jesus Christ. There are many different areas that missionary work can involve, including education, health care, literacy, economic development and orphanages just to name a few. The primary objective of missionary work is to help others as God has commanded and through our love of helping others we are able to show what it means to be a follower of Christ.
