General Grant Information (4)
The Vessel is intended to be an encouragement to people taking those first, scary steps of faith as they try to raise significant financial support and stretch their faith. Raising support is an important component of missions work, just like learning to fully listen to Him and to trust God for every detail.
The Vessel is focused on the person going, not on the agency, NGO, church, choir, medical team or organization that is organizing or underwriting a particular mission/humanitarian trip.
About The Vessel (4)
We believe that regardless of the actual project or the work of mission, fundamentally, any missionary is an ambassador of the Most High God - our Father. We have been reconciled to Him through Jesus Christ and now have the opportunity to invite others into that reconciliation. In 2 Corinthians 5: 17-20, Paul says it this way:
17So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away—look, what is new has come! 18And all these things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 19In other words, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them, and he has given us the message of reconciliation. 20Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His plea through us. We plead with you on Christ’s behalf, 'Be reconciled to God!'
