At The Greater Houston Church we are committed to the great commission. In Matthew 28, Jesus said to his disciples,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing 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.”
Supporting missionary work has been a cornerstone of The Greater Houston Church since it was planted in 1992. It is our prayer and vision to see the gospel of Christ spread to every corner of Texas, Oklahoma, and the world in our lifetime. For decades we have supported missionary work in Eurasia (Western Russia and Ukraine). Currently, we provide financial support for the work in Texas, Oklahoma, Monterrey Mexico, and Africa. In addition to financial support we also send missionaries, volunteer trips, and work relationally with the leaders in these areas to offer mentoring, training, and other ecclesiastical support. We are not alone in this endeavor and are proud of our partnership with our sister churches in Texas, Oklahoma, and the mission committees of the International Churches of Christ.
As a church in Houston we see the great mission field that God has given us in ministering to the third largest city in the nation and the energy capitol of the world. At the same time, however, we recognize that God has blessed us and that we are in a position to help many around the world. In The Greater Houston Church we believe that our vision and influence must reach beyond the borders of Houston.
