to plant churches & strengthen existing local churches.
We are committed to the preparing and sending of people that are seeking the Lord to enable them to live and proclaim the gospel with authenticity and passion.
the local church is called by god to go, make disciples, teach, and baptize
Our objective in global outreach at Grace Church of DuPage is to plant churches and strengthen existing local churches. Grace Church plays an active role in the preparation and sending of global outreach workers. It is our firm belief that there should be a strong tie between the local church and the outreach field.
to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace...
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he set forth in christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth (Ephesians 1:7-10).
We exist to magnify the worth of God by exalting his name, equipping the saints, and extending Christ's Kingdom. One way this is accomplished is when the local church, acting in obedience, sends its members to make disciples of the nations. These members “sent ones”, who go with authority preaching, baptizing and teaching others. We desire to join in God's work, as he has called us, to unite all things to himself.
follow Updates from the field
Periodically during the evening service, the Grace Church body is updated on current events in global outreach and the status of various workers and encouraged to be involved through prayer and projects on behalf of the the work being done. We also have a global outreach updates blog, where we seek to keep the church family informed on the happenings in the lives of our brothers and sisters laboring for the sake of the gospel across the world, so that we can better know how to lift them up in prayer, seek God to cause their ministry to be fruitful, and to support them in their work.
