“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19)
Missions isn’t an extra “add-on” to the church’s purpose. Rather, it is essential to the church’s very existence: the church exists to make disciples of Christ. This happens both as people embrace Christ and are baptized, and as they grow and are nurtured in their faith through Christian teaching and fellowship. We seek to obey this Great Commission at home and abroad: both by reaching out in love to our neighbors and by supporting men and women who take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Alonzo is a native Peruvian working with the Christian Missionary Society, planting Presbyterian and Reformed churches in northern Peru. Peru Mission co-labors with the Holy Spirit in the major cities of Northern Peru, establishing Christian communities that are molded, shaped, and propelled by the Gospel. Through pastoral ministry, relief work, leadership training, university ministry, parish day-schools, and economic development, the Lord is building strong, vibrant parish churches that are not only becoming self-sustaining and self-propagating, but also actively involved in bringing God’s justice, mercy, and peace to the world around them.
