Nearby: The Needs Next Door

The glorious message of the gospel is that God came near to us. Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase of John 1:14 says it all, “The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” As Christ-followers, we can sometimes be focused more on the far away and neglect the nearby. The Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering is making a difference in reaching our state – those nearby. Every gift given through this offering goes to plant churches, evangelize, give hope and truth to the people of Louisiana. We believe Louisiana is a mission field and we’re ready to meet the needs next door. Jesus’ words to the disciples still ring true today: Jesus replied, “We must go to the nearby towns, so that I can tell the good news to those people. This is why I have come.”

We need to take the Gospel to the nations, cities and towns beginning with those nearby.
