Our Guiding Light
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
In Christianity, the Great Commission is the instruction of the resurrected Jesus Christ to his disciples to spread the gospel to all the nations of the world. The most famous version of the Great Commission is in Matthew 28:16–20, where on a mountain in Galilee Jesus calls on his followers to make disciples of and baptize all nations in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It has become a tenet in Christian theology emphasizing ministry, missionary work, evangelism, and baptism.
Today, so many people call themselves Christian, while feeling no duty to live and think as one. This reality demonstrates just how much the culture has re-imagined the Church to become merely an identity or a brand, rather than an encounter with divinity in the Person of Jesus Christ. The Great Commission Theatre seeks to engage the culture with relevant stories that proclaim God’s Truth and creates a platform of evangelism without being preachy.
Our prayer is to draw ever deeper into the mystery of Christ while discovering an understanding of ourselves and God’s creation. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. We are here to share stories that speak life into the experiences of every person in our present culture, meeting them where they are and where one can discover purpose in the human condition through faith, hope, mercy, grace, redemption, and above all, love.
We believe in producing high-quality stage productions that
inspire hope and encouragement through the Christian world-view.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
We believe in fellowship that
helps build God’s Kingdom.
That there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.
We believe in encountering and accompanying
others that seek to grow in their relationship with Christ.
For to this, you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.
We believe in giving our time, talent, and treasure to The Lord, our neighbors, and his divine creation.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
~ 1 Peter 4:10
