Heathervale Baptist Church
We take very seriously our responsibility to share in the fulfilment of ‘The Great Commission’ spoken by Jesus and recorded for us in Matthew 28: 19-20:
‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising 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’.
We understand that command to be holistic in its application, so that in bringing the Good News of Jesus to the whole world, it may first be necessary to meet the needs of people in the areas of food, housing, clothing, employment, medical care etc. and in so doing, express the love of Jesus for the physical as well as the spiritual well-being of those with whom we share God’s creation.
