Our mission

is to boldly, intentionally and faithfully make known the light, love and peace of Jesus Christ, by word and deed, to those around the world who live in spiritual disbelief, darkness and despair.

Mission Objective

To multiply those involved in Gospel Proclamation that the Spirit might work faith in those who hear His Word

Core Biblical Values

All those involved with MCN accept and confess, without reservation, the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the written Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and practice, especially the central teachings of Holy Scripture that Jesus Christ, the second person of the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, alone is the Savior of the world, and that only out of grace for Christ’s sake through faith in Him is there forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation (John 3:16; 1 John 2:2; Acts 4:12).

Our Beliefs

The Mission Belongs to God and Begins in the Heart of God

From God’s first promise that he would “take action” to save his people (Gen. 3:15), to His command to Abraham “to go” (Gen. 12:1-3), to His prophets who were sent throughout the Old Testament to give witness, to Christ’s command to the seventy “to go,” (Luke 10:1-3) and Christ’s command of Matthew 28:19, God is active in mission.

God’s Mission Is to and for Everyone

God’s desire is that all of mankind are to be saved. (1 Tim. 2:4) As such His Gospel is to be proclaimed throughout the world, with no exceptions (Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8).

God’s Mission Involves All Christians

All Christians are missionaries (1 Pet. 2:9). Christians are not only to live lives that glorify God (1 Pet 2:12) but are to seize every opportunity presented to share His Gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ to all (1 Peter 3:15). While some may be called into the specific ministry of Word and Sacrament (the ordained), and some may be sent to accomplish specific tasks in missionary service (Acts 8:28-31). Whether through proclamation or mercy work, all are called to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8-10).

God’s Mission Is Empowered by the Holy Spirit

Not only was the Holy Spirit active with the Father and the Son in creation (Genesis 1:2) but the Father and the Son sent the Holy Spirit (John 14:26, 16:7) so that mankind may receive the benefits of Jesus’ redemptive work (1 Co. 3:5-6). And, as the Holy Spirit empowered the church on the day of Pentecost to proclaim God’s message (Acts 2:33) so the Holy Spirit continues to empower all believers in Christ (1 John 4:13).

God's Mission Is Urgent

Every second of every day, people who do not through faith know Jesus Christ as their Savior, die an eternal death. (John 9:4). Yet, God’s desire is that all are to be saved (1 Tim. 2:4).

God’s Mission Must Be My Mission

As Christians, we must be prepared at all times to give witness (1 Peter 3:15) to the core of God’s mission proclamation (John 3:16). We cannot, therefore, leave the work of God’s mission to “the church” in general or to “others” for each of us is a personal ambassador for Christ to the world (2 Co. 3:2-3).

Our Strategies

  • Identify Mission Opportunities Worldwide
    Build partnerships with Christian schools, churches, and organizations for the sake of Gospel Proclamation

    Provide best-practice training and education to ensure clear, cross-cultural Gospel Proclamation in order that the Spirit might have free course to work in the hearts of those who don’t yet trust Jesus as their Savior

 

  • Support All the Sent
    Provide ongoing training and support for individuals and congregations sent to serve throughout the world

 

  • Disciple at Home and Abroad
    Connect new believers to communities of faith for continued spiritual growth

Our Values

  • MCN values the foundational belief that the Mission is God’s and we follow Him.
  • MCN values the priesthood of all believers and their role in God’s Mission. We are lay-focused and led by a board of laity.
  • MCN values Intentional Gospel Proclamation. This means that we are always aggressively waiting for God’s timing to “give an answer to everyone who asks … the reason for the hope” that we have. (1 Peter 3:15)
  • MCN values excellent training and support. Best-practice training “by missionaries, for missionaries” and excellent missionary care equips and enables mission partners to engage effectively in long-term, cross-cultural ministry.
  • MCN values networking internationally and nationally. We believe mission happens in partnership.
