"The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become." -- Henry Martyn
Sharing Christ with the nations is not an option. We are commanded to take the gospel to the world. There are currently 6,829 unreached people groups. Carl Henry was correct when he said "The Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time". There are millions perishing in our world today that have no access to the gospel.
Therefore, we want to increasingly become a church that has one eye fixed on the glory of Christ and one eye fixed on the nations. To that end we encourage you to check out these particular projects:

"God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. He has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of His name among the nations. Therefore, let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose." -- John Piper
