At Porter, we are committed to missions. This is non-negotiable because our God is a missionary God! He sent His Son to save us and has given us a similar mission to spread the message of His Gospel.
Missions doesn't just involve one place. Acts 1:8 says "you shall be My witness both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." That doesn't mean that all mission focuses on these three Middle Eastern areas. Rather, it implies that the Gospel spreads out in concentric circles from a central location. In New Testament times, “home base” was the Jerusalem church. In our day and age, it is the local church.
In that same manner, Porter seeks to do missions everywhere. We don't see a distinction between local missions and international missions. God has called us to be Great Commission Christians wherever we go. We're glad to have a variety of partnerships that help us fulfill God’s call for us to join Him in His mission.
