The Gospel to the World…

04.17.16 | by Ray Jones

    The Gospel to the World…

    Before Jesus ascended to His Father, He left us a Great Commission to get the message of the gospel to all people… to start where we are and to expand outwardly. That mission of spreading the good news and making disciples is what drives us. And it is more than just a good idea, it’s a mission that we not only affirm but also are faithfully engaged in. For example just this past week, 100’s from our community were fed and heard the gospel on Monday evening, and 31 people gave their lives to Christ. This past week an RBC mission team spent time ministering in Honduras, working along side career missionaries Ken and Kirsten Nelson who went out from our church. This past week 9 of our disaster relief team members traveled to Monroe, LA to assist that area in recovery from the devastating floods of just a few weeks back. And there is more…

    Matthew Johnson gave me a report this week on how our media and live stream broadcasting is reaching viewers all over America. For example in just the past week, our worship broadcast has been viewed by people in the following cities and states:

    I just thought you might like to know. And it is because of your faithful tithes and financial gifts that we as God’s family at RBC are able to do what Jesus commanded us to do and take the gospel, literally, to the whole world… in our local community, in our state, across our nation and to the ends of the earth. Thank you, for your continued faithfulness and partnership in the work of God at Ridgecrest.

    Remember, God is always trying to take us someplace new. I love being your pastor!!!

    For God’s Glory Alone,
