MISSIONS SUPPORT AT CRESTVIEW
Before Jesus ascended back to His Father, and after His resurrection, He left a command to His disciples, and all believers alive today: fulfill the Great Commission. Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
One way that we obey this command is through our missions support. At Crestview Baptist Church, we do this through our prayers, our giving, and the use of our time, talents, and treasures aimed to win the lost for Christ. As a Southern baptist Church, we participate in the North American Missions Board, and specific missions offerings like the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and the Ray Roberts Offering which supports Ohio missions.
When we give to the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, for North American missions, we honor the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong. Annie was a tireless servant of God and an advocate of mission efforts throughout the world, Annie challenged churches to give, pray, and do more for reaching people for Christ. The Annie Armstrong offering is a North American missions offering and 100% of this offering remains in the U.S. and Canada
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, is an international missions offering which supports Southern Baptist missionaries as they share the Gospel of Jesus Christ overseas. The offering represents 59 percent of IMB’s total income, and every penny you give to the offering goes directly to support missionaries. As Southern Baptists provide more resources, greater numbers of missionaries can be sent.
The Gospel of Jesus is impacting lives every day through Church Plants and other ministries in Ohio! We can join in God's activity throughout the state by praying for and giving of our resources to help the more than 100 missionaries currently working in our Convention. The Ray Roberts offering is an Ohio missions offering and 100% of this offering remains in the great state of Ohio.
