A Great Commission
Each week we conclude our worship gathering with, “you are sent”. That is our reminder to one another that the gospel is never intended to stay just with us. Jesus told his disciples to take the great hope of the gospel all the way to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:18-20), and each generation of believers has sought to advance that mission for the past 2,000 years. This is our time. With the joy and power the gospel gives us, Mercy Church is committed to taking the gospel to people groups who have never heard it.
The Local Outreach Ministry at Mercy Church exists to send disciples to display the gospel to the marginalized communities of our city. Serving alongside like-minded partner organizations, we seek to love others as Jesus loves us.
We believe, just as Christ modeled for us, that the best way to advance his kingdom and fulfill the great commission is by planting churches. Mercy Church is the fruit of this very belief, planted to reach the city of Charlotte with the gospel by the Summit Church in Durham, North Carolina.
COVID-19 UPDATE: DUE TO GLOBAL TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS, MERCY CHURCH HAS SUSPENDED SHORT-TERM TRIPS.
Mercy Church believes that God’s plan for taking the gospel to the ends of the earth will be carried out through healthy local churches. That’s why our short-term trips are sent to serve alongside strategic church planters and long-term missionary partners both here in the US and around the world.
