Renewed Mission

Renewed Mission

“Blessed to be a blessing”—God’s covenant to Abraham from ages past continues to shape our mission today. Yet the Christian church is not always received as a blessing in the world these days. God’s renovating work calls us to new ways of extending blessing to those in our community.

The Call of Abram

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

“I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.[a]
I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”[b]


[a] Or be seen as blessed
[b] Or earth / will use your name in blessings (see 48:20)
