We see evangelism and missions occurring on four levels as defined by Christ in Acts 1:8:
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
Level 1 – Jerusalem – our immediate mission field. This includes the people our members interact with, the people living in the areas where our members live and the neighbourhoods in proximity to our church. It includes reaching people in the areas we live in.
Level 2 – Judea – our regional mission field. This includes other suburbs, towns, cities and provinces in South Africa. Seeking to establish new Bible-believing churches in South Africa , as well as assisting and cooperating with existing ones fulfils this part of the missions mandate.
Level 3 – Samaria – our cross-cultural mission field. This means crossing cultural and language barriers to reach the many other cultures in South Africa.
Level 4 – the uttermost part of the earth – our international mission field. This means sending and supporting church-planter who leave the borders of South Africa to preach the Gospel, establish churches and make disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ in other countries.
New Covenant Baptist desires to be a part of the Lord’s mission in all four of these levels.
