The nations are where we do what we do, starting in our own backyards, into the rest of the world. The nations have always been in the plan of God, and we are to proclaim the good news of the gospel to everyone, everywhere for His name sake!
This is the inaugural message from Crosspoint Church, Rockford, Illinois. God is reconfiguring a new body out of three pieces, with distinctive histories as a testimony to our community and the world that the hand of the Lord is mighty, that nothing is impossible for Him, and that He should be honored, and worshiped, and feared and proclaimed to the ends of the earth for all eternity (Josh. 4:24).
