about acts 1:8

  • "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Acts 1:8  nkjv

the challenge


The Acts 1:8 challenge is an opportunity for GracePoint to declare our commitment to a comprehensive missions strategy in our community (Jerusalem), state (Judea), continent (Samaria), and world (ends of the earth).


Jesus commanded the church to take the Gospel to all the world and gave us a powerful model in Acts 1:8 that is local, regional, continental, and global. With the model, GracePoint can be a worldwide mission center in obedience to the Great Commission.



These eight kingdom-growing responses are expressed by: expository preaching with an emphasis on spiritual growth and a call to commitment; age-appropriate missions and ministry education and preparation; cheerful giving; strong missions partnerships; and acknowledgment of the responsibility that we, as willing servants of our Lord, have to reach out and share God’s love across the street and around the world.
