“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.”
Our desire is to aggressively engage in sharing the gospel of God’s grace with the world and making disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe that every Christian is a missionary sent by Jesus (John 20:21), and that wherever God calls us to live geographically, we are to live intentionally in our communities as witnesses for Christ (Acts 1:8), whether in the Coastlands here in San Diego or oversees in another nation. We also believe that the local church is to financially support those that are called to foreign missions as an extension of the local church. At Calvary Chapel Encinitas, we support those that we are connected to through relationship, and we are committed to devoting 10% of our tithes & offerings toward missions, whether it be in years of plenty or times when finances are lean. We currently give monthly financial support to 2 families (Stephen & Pat Apple; Bond & Heather Gaona), and give prayer support to our other Missionary Friends, and at times financially as we are able.
