Old and New Testament

Missionaries in the Bible

Paul and Barnabas to Cyprus

There are many examples throughout the Old and New Testament of God using missionaries in the Bible, despite their imperfections, to share His message, His perfect love, and the good news of His Son throughout the world.

Rom. 4:13


The Story of Redemption

The story of redemption in the bible begins with God’s promise to Abraham and his role in the plan of redemption. Abraham struggled with the call given to him by God, but his struggle led to great growth and faith. For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. (Rom. 4:13) Read more about Abraham’s story beginning in Genesis 12.

Jonah 1


God’s Grace and Love

Not every missionary in the Bible responded willingly to their call. Though Jonah was a prophet who believed in God’s message and the need to preach the gospel, he was reluctant to go when called by God to go outside his comfort zone. He ran from God and yet God still wanted him as his missionary. Through the story of Jonah, we learn of God’s grace even in the face of our willful disobedience and the love He has for all nations. Learn more about Jonah’s story beginning in Jonah 1.

Acts 9


From Persecutor To Missionary

Paul or Saul as he is known when we first meet him in the bible is introduced not as a missionary for Christ, but as an avid persecutor of the early New Testament church. His life and mission change when he meets the risen Christ on the road to Damascus leading to his repentance and receiving the Holy Spirit. Afterward, Saul began going by his Roman name, Paul, and spent the last 35 years of his life in ministry. Learn more about Paul’s journey from persecutor to missionary beginning in Acts 9.

Matthew 4


Forgiving and Patient

One of the twelve disciples and the first called by Jesus, Peter began his life as a fisherman. He is a perfect example of how forgiving and patient God is with us as imperfect servants of a perfect God. Peter, like many of us, was strong-willed, impulsive, and impetuous to the point of rashness. Despite all his flaws, Jesus remained his loving Lord and faithful Guide and Peter became a powerful missionary for the New Testament church. Read more about Peter’s journey beginning in Matthew 4.

Join them in praying that those they share the Gospel with will believe the Scriptures. “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” (Rom. 10:17)

Become Childern of God

Join them in praying that those who hear the news of Jesus will believe in Christ as Savior. “Yet all who receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

Join us in Prayer

Jesus is Lord

Finally, join them in praying that those they reach will confess that Christ is Lord and that those new believers take root and grow in Christ. “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Rom. 10:9) “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (Col. 2:6-7)

We seek to share the gospel in all it’s fullness to the glory of God by establishing, growing, and maturing the church in Asia.
