AT LEGACY CHURCH WE BELIEVE MISSIONS IS GOING TO THE NATIONS AS WELL AS OUR NEIGHBORS TO PERFORM THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST.
We participate in Missions in the following ways:
We partner with the Alpha Pregnancy Care Center, Capital City Rescue Mission and Jezreel International to reach the city of Albany to help the poor and disenfranchised.
We financially support a variety of individuals and organizations who perform the ministry of Jesus Christ by preaching the Gospel, serving the poor, and providing medical care.
MISSIONS TASK FORCE
We believe that supporting missionaries goes beyond sending a check each month. Our Missions Task Force encourages communication between the church and missionaries, and informs our church partners of the news and prayer needs of those we support. We encourage regular prayer for our missionaries and their work.
We recognize four scriptural pillars for missions:
To do our part in helping to fulfill the great commission; that is to go and preach the good news of Jesus Christ to every person to make disciples of all the nations
Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
To minister God’s grace in its various forms to the whole realm of human need – spiritual, physical, and emotional/intellectual
Isaiah 58:6-10; Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18-19; James 2:15-16
To serve the poor
Luke 4:18; Acts 6:1-7; James 2:15-16
To honor the foundation of God’s grace to us, freely we are to give
