Jesus’ final command to his disciples in the Bible was to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). As believers, we are called to spread God’s word throughout the world — whether that is just outside our door or across the globe. Use this collection of Bible verses to discuss the call to missions in your conversations, sermons, worship, work, and service.
Matthew 28:19 - 20
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 that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
1 Chronicles 16:24
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.
Romans 10:13 -15
For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach to the gospel to all creation.”
But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
2 Timothy 2:2
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
