Missions Conference – 2017
He Gathers the Nations for His Glory
A mass movement of people is taking place today in numbers too vast to count. People are moving from the countryside to urban centers. They are changing countries, either by choice or under pressure–forced to flee war or persecution. All this movement is an unprecedented opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that all nations will hear the gospel and then the end will come. Our hope is to one day stand before the throne of God with a great multitude from every nation and praise our Lord. God’s promises and prophecies inspire the mission of Fourth Presbyterian Church to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the nations, for his glory. Let the nations be glad!
