Christian mission work involves three components: loving our neighbors, making new disciples, and seeking justice for the disadvantaged (Mt 22:37-39; Mt 28:18-20; Am 5:21-24).  It also involves three dimensions geographically.  In Acts 1:8, Christ says to his followers, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Jerusalem was where the disciples were; it represents local missions.  Judea and Samaria were the surrounding areas; they represent regional missions.  The ends of the earth cover everywhere else on the globe; they represent international missions.  In light of this text, we engage in three-dimensional mission work: locally, regionally, and internationally.
