Our Mission To America
Use Our Rise Evangelism Tools to Reach Those Around You
“You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses” (Acts 1:8). Start right where you live, go to the nearby areas, reach across cultural lines and even go to new nations in your passion to preach the gospel. The Rising Movement Mission to America equips and sends all of our disciples to the people right around where you live. We must learn Jesus’ evangelistic lifestyle in our home area first before we are ready to reach across cultural lines or travel to other nations.
“Whatever house your enter…” (Lk 10:5). The Lord Jesus sends us out to enter the dwelling place of those who are searching for Christ. While we respect people’s boundaries regarding Covid 19, we also receive Jesus’ promise when He instructed His disciples and “gave them power and authority over all the demons, and to heal diseases. He sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to perform healing” (Lk 9:1-2).
1. Jesus Sends His Disciples Out to Discover Receptive People
“Whatever house you enter first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. Heal those who are sick and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you’” (Lk 10:5, 6, 9).
Our goal is to discover receptive homes and develop redemptive relationships with each family. Ideally, in one neighborhood, several families can be brought together around a host home.
We want to find people who say “Yes” to Jesus: To welcome a team, to study the gospel, to trust the Lord Jesus as their Savior, to share their testimony with their family and friends, to be baptized, to receive leadership training, to host a Bible study, to grow it into a house church, to go to our Hub Church, to form and send out their own fire teams (not necessarily in that order).
