Cana’s Understanding of Missions: Reclaim Matthew 28:18-19
“Missions” involves that activity in which believers: 1) intentionally, directly, and verbally proclaim to unbelievers, no matter who they are or where they are, from the Scriptures how the sinless life, substitutionary death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, is the one and only propitiation and provision for the sins of any individual who believes in Christ and repents of his/her sin; and 2) instruct any individual who believes in Christ alone for salvation and repents of his/her sin to profess his/her faith in Christ through believer’s baptism, by immersion, and to learn to obey all the commands of Jesus Christ. We prioritize our support and mobilization of missions through both the mission endeavors of Cana Baptist Church and those of its members. Because of Cana Baptist Church’s affiliation with the Southern Baptist Convention by our adoption of its doctrinal statement (the current version of the Baptist Faith and Message) and our giving through the Cooperative Program, we prefer to support the mobilization of missions by giving to and through Southern Baptist causes above other missions mobilization causes.
