“The local church is the hope of the world,” as Bill Hybels has said. I must agree. God has ordained His Church to take Christ both to our neighbors and the nations. Our ministry in Athens understands the importance of partnering with local churches to carry out the Great Commission (Mat. 28:18-20). One day, we would love to see the local church in Athens take the lead in outreach to the refugees here. We see glimpses of this at times (we’re very proud of the work of our church here in Athens – 2nd Evangelical), but we’re still far from realizing this dream.
Below is a video produced by International Teams challenging the church to be what God has made it to be: God’s instrument of redemption for the world!
