Local

Columbia Presbyterian Church has a local missions team which oversees our supporting and involvement of missions and ministries within 50 miles of our location in Columbia Md.  Our goal as a committee is to not only become involved in local missions but to actively encourage, involve and educate our congregation in local missions opportunities and needs.

We are driven by the Great Commission found in Matt 28:18-20 and Jesus’s last words to His disciples in Acts 1:8 to be His witnesses both locally and globally.

Local Missions Priorities

In conjunction with the CPC Missions Strategy approved in October 2018 the Local Missions Committee of Columbia Presbyterian Church agrees to the general prioritization guidelines for local missions requests.

  1. Missions must be in agreement with the authority of scripture, the work of Christ alone for salvation and salvation by grace alone.
  2. Missions should be addressing the whole counsel of God meaning addressing both spiritual and physical issues of humanity.
  3. Missions should afford the general membership of CPC the opportunity to be able to be involved in the ministry in some fashion.  Ministries where CPC members are already involved will get priority.
  4. Missions that address spiritual and physical needs of poor, oppressed or disadvantaged people groups per James 1:26-27.
