MISSIONS SERMON OUTLINES

by Ken Trivette

The words "missions" and "missionary" are not found in the Bible; however, the words have become a part of our Christian vocabulary (or at least should be). Where do the words come from and what do they mean? Our English word "mission" comes from the Latin word "missio" which was derived from the Greek word "apostello" which means "to send, one sent...

I want to begin by asking a question: How many of you here are Christians? What I mean by that is not that you have joined the church, not that you have been baptized, not that you try to live a good life; but you have repented of your sins, by faith acknowledged Jesus Christ as God's Son, accepted His death on the cross as payment for your sins, and totally committed…

Southern Baptists are mission minded. We are a Southern Baptist Church. Our church is a mission minded church. We gave $38.49 cents per capita to Lottie Moon Christmas offering last year. That's pretty good compared to other churches. However, I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings but that is pretty pitiful in light of how much money we waste on things…

Today marks another historic day here at Roswell Street Baptist Church. For the first time ever .. on this missions warm-up day .. we are simulcasting today's message from our Worship Center over to the "G" building so that I can speak to both worship venues at the same time. Today's technology is also helping us get the gospel in places around the world that 10-20 years…

Introduction: We need to lift ourselves out of a self-centered spirituality, a mentality that says we are victims rather than warriors. Our vision must be God's vision - to reach our city and make it a place where God's presence, God's ways, and God's word are a dominant force. Over half of the world's population lives in urban centers and large cities. Most of these…

When I was 9 years of age I became a Royal Ambassador. The RA's is a missionary education organization in Southern Baptist churches. The Royal Ambassador organization perhaps had a greater influence upon my life than any other one thing. That is when I began to memorize scripture. That is where I learned how to share my faith. That is where I developed…

It was a momentous hour in the history of American space travel when our first space craft was moved to the launching pad. It was carefully placed in its position. In a little while the engines were ignited and the first space craft blasted into orbit. All subsequent space exploration goes back and owes its success to that first initial successful launch. In a similar vein it was a…

How would you like to participate in the most important mission of all times? This mission has greater historical significance than President Nixon's 1972 visit to Beijing and the opening of China to international commerce and trade, and diplomacy. This mission has greater historical significance than President George Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Helmut Kohl…

I know, here we go talking about money again. Well, have you ever heard a Baptist preacher who didn't talk about money? If he didn't' he probably wasn't saved. The story is told about a man who had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. He was not allowed to have many visitors, fearing that the excitement might not be good for him. While he was in the…

We already have what we need to live out our personal spiritual lives and what we need in order to fulfill the calling of God to reach the culture around us. We must lift up our eyes to see the culture that needs the light of the gospel and the mission fields God has already prepared for us to enter. We have been examining the importance of being established in…

In 1993 FBI agents conducted a raid of Southwood Psychiatric Hospital in San Diego, which was under investigation for medical insurance fraud. After hours of reviewing medical records, the agents had worked up an appetite. The agent in charge of the investigation called a nearby pizza parlor to order a quick dinner for his colleagues...

Last weekend your vestry and rector spent some very productive time taking the parish ideas about God's vision for St. Philip's and hammering them into something more solid along with a set of goals we hope to achieve as a parish this year and for the next three years. The buildup from vision to goals to mission begins of...

For the past fourteen months we've had the privilege as a church of watching the life of another local church over the course of forty years. In Acts 18-20 we saw the birth and early years of the church at Ephesus; in Paul's letter to the Ephesians we saw the early needs of that church just seven to ten years into its...

There was a young man who wanted more than a job, he wanted an experience, so he joined the army. The army placed him immediately in the Paratrooper division. They took this man up to 15,000 ft., put a parachute on him and told him to jump. He said, "what am I supposed to do after I jump?" First, pull this...

My dad just turned 95 a couple of weeks ago. When he was born in 1921 there were about 9,000,000 cars in America on the road, with a population of about 110,000,000. It was the first year you could buy a Ford car with color, and not just basic black. Today there are over 250,000,000 cars on the roads in all kinds of colors, and a...

Have you ever wanted something that you knew was impossible? Maybe it was a job you knew you'd never get. Maybe it was an award you knew you'd never win. Maybe it was a chance that you knew would never come around again. But there was something that you wanted that you knew was absolutely, completely, totally impossible...

Why are we here? What are we about? What is the point behind what we do as Christians and as a church? How do the mission and priorities of Christ Jesus change what and how we do what we do? How does it impact who we are? Six weeks out from Jesus' resurrection, the disciples were doing a lot of soul-searching...

Everything he did was a statement. It was the way Jesus taught. It was the way he lived. It was not that he went around trying to make waves. His very living and being was a statement of his essence, purpose, and an integral aspect of teaching the good news. Teaching and doing were simply two aspects of being. They were...
