A passion for missions lies at the heart of the Beachpoint Church—and at the heart of God, too. Because our God is a God who sends, we are a people who live sent. Jesus is referred to as “sent” forty-four times in the New Testament. After his resurrection, Jesus passed his identity on to his disciples: “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you” (John 20:21 NIV). To follow Jesus is to be sent.
