Outreach & Missions
Christ’s greatest purpose on earth is the Spirit-led advancement of the gospel until all God’s elect are gathered from throughout the world (Matt 28:18-20; John 10:16; Acts 1:8). That is the Great Commission, and the church is entrusted with fulfilling it. At Anchorage Grace Church, we undertake this responsibility with a comprehensive approach.
Outreach encompasses the service and evangelistic ministries of the church to the community that lives and works within its immediate sphere of influence. Outreach ministries find their impetus in the commands to make disciples (Matt 28:18-20), to do good to all people (Gal 6:10), to love our neighbors as ourselves (Luke 10:27-37), and to let our light shine before men (Matt 5:16).

Missions is the task of taking the gospel beyond the immediate influence of the sending church in order to evangelize and to instruct in the Word of God those who have little or no opportunity to hear the gospel, for the purpose of establishing and strengthening local churches. Frontier missions, like the work of the Apostle Paul, aim to take the gospel to people who have not heard the good news of Jesus Christ, and do not have access to gospel-preaching churches in their own culture (Rom 15:19-23). Cross-cultural missions, like that done by Timothy, involves traveling far to serve where the church, though perhaps fairly established, benefits from a missionary’s service (Acts 16:1-3; 1 Tim 1:3).
