WHAT IS OUTREACH?
Outreach is what Christ commanded us to do. Even though the word
“outreach” is not mentioned in the Bible, the intent of Christ's message is
clearly given in the following passages, and these are only a few of many:
Matthew 28:19: “Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy
Mark 16:15: “And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the
good news to the whole creation’.”
Luke 4:18: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed
me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to
the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed to go
From the above passages, we see that our mission is to carry the message
of Christ to the world. This fits with our mission statement: We are called,
"To be a light, living as a witness to Christ's love,
serving and nurturing all."
When we interact with others as witnesses of Christ's love, we are
reaching out. That is the basic element of Outreach.
The most obvious outreach is when we provide service to those in need:
feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, visiting the sick. These are
certainly scriptural. However, we must look beyond service to the way
we are viewed as Christians. Christ‐centered interaction with the
community and with individuals is essential to outreach.
