Making Disciples of All Nations
After Christ’s atoning work on the cross and his resurrection from the dead, he commissioned his disciples with familiar words: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matt 28:19-20). These are the standing orders of every Christian, every church, and at Crossway we take them seriously.
Partners in Making Disciples
Beyond on our own local efforts, Crossway also partners with others to make disciples. Through the Cooperative Program, we partner with thousands of local churches to send mission workers around the globe. But we also have two direct partnerships. One is with the Tamashek people of West Africa and the other is with The Philippines. With these groups, we partner in prayer, finances, and personnel. This is most clearly seen in regular trips to work with field missionaries.
