The Rubber Meets the Road: The Pledge

Now, on the last day, we have been called to take the next step of obedience in following Jesus. How about you, friend? Are you willing to consider “Going to the Nations for the Glory of God?”

The CM 2007 Pledge


…the lost can not perceive the majesty of the Lord, and God deserves the glory, honor and praise of all.

…God desires the ends of the earth turn to Him and be saved

…Christ died for all; therefore all deserve the opportunity to hear the Gospel.

…the Lord deserves the rewards of Christ’s suffering, which are the redeemed from every nation.

…the deepest needs of the human race can only be met by Jesus Christ.

…Jesus said “the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few”.

…Jesus made me a light to the nations, so that His salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.

Because of these…

… I choose to invest my time, energy, resources, and abilities in light of eternity, to follow Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit, in unity with the Body of Christ.
In full surrender to Him, I will go to the unevangelized university students of the world, and beyond, “that the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea!”
