God doesn’t expect us to live life in a vacuum. We draw from Him, and He fills us so we can overflow into others’ lives.
At Marshall Ford we believe every believer in Jesus is automatically commissioned by Him as a missionary to the unreached among whom we live and work. (Matt. 28:19-20) Each of us has been specifically placed in this world to be salt and light, to be what Jesus would look like in our skin, to love the lost unconditionally. Having been placed where we are, we understand the culture, the language, the needs of our “tribe” better than anyone.
Therefore our calling and mission is “make disciples of Jesus.”
