God’s vision church didn’t start with the church building, or even with Christian environments: it started with the world! In John 3:16 we learn that “For God so loved the WORLD…”. Many times we view the world as broken, but, in reality, they are lost and wounded.

Pastor Tim wraps up our series Go looking at the crucial promise of the Great Commission: Jesus goes with us.
