MISSIONS

At Grace Point, we are passionate about fulfilling the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:18-20). 

We are called to freely share the Gospel through words and actions. 

God wants the whole world to hear the Good News through ordinary followers of Jesus like us! 


Below is information about our global missions initiatives at Grace Point. More information coming soon!

Our ACTS 1:8

We believe that God has commissioned each of us as individuals and as a church to be witnesses in:

  • Our Jerusalem - in our local church and community
  • Our Judea - in our Lower Bucks County region
  • Our Samaria - Philly/Metro Area
  • Ends of the Earth - globally

At Grace Point our missions and outreach opportunities are strategic to help us focus on key areas of ministry and work in our "Acts 1:8" circles of influence.


“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 

(Acts 1:8)


OUR global FOCUS

FOCUS is an acronym that stands for First Priority, Objectives Oriented, Collaborative, Untapped Potential, and Strategic. 

This means that our FOCUS will receive first priority among our missions projects and new initiatives, and when communicating about our missions endeavors, our FOCUS takes priority. 


The basis of our FOCUS is that it is a partnership with strategic goals and objectives to help meet key ministry needs both here at home and overseas. We hope that our FOCUS will be an opportunity for everyone in our church (regardless of your experience and/or skillset) to be involved in missions at a deeper level for significant Kingdom impact.

Lebanon

The FOCUS Selection Team worked for many months evaluating each of our current missions initiatives, interviewing missionaries about a God-sized vision they have, looking at current and potential global connections, reflecting on prior events and initiatives that had great energy and momentum, and closely analyzing our church’s DNA in the areas of ministry, make-up, and missions history.


After our survey trips, careful analysis and much prayer, it was clear that God was leading us towards Lebanon and the multi-faceted ministry opportunities there that include outreach to Syria. Our team made solid connections with other like-minded churches and explored various ways that we could partner together. 

KINSHIP NETWORK

There are lots of opportunities to get involved with our ministry partners in Lebanon and through the Kinship Network


We anticipate that this will include things like evangelism, providing assistance to refugees, teacher training, medical teams, camps and other children’s ministries, business development, music ministries, building projects, encouraging our partners, internships of various types, and most importantly praying for our partners and the believers in Lebanon. We will also be pursuing ways to encourage and support the persecuted Syrian church.


One of our major ministries will be prayer. The believers in Lebanon and Syria want to know that Christians from the West care enough to intercede on their behalf as they face trials because they boldly declare themselves as Christ-followers.
