John's Gospel tells us "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:17) The Son- Jesus- sent and continues to send his followers into the world with these words, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
FUMC Carlsbad is committed to reach beyond the walls of our buildings into all the world with the good news of the grace and love of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
If you have a heart for reaching others through international missions please call Rev. Dan Boyd at (575) 885-3142 to discover ways to live out the passion of your heart.
