Your Church a WORLDWIDE mission center

One Challenge – Eight Commitments

The eight Kingdom-Growing Responses of the Acts 1:8 Challenge (below) are designed to encourage a church to be intentional in areas of missions involvement under the leadership and power of the Holy Spirit. These responses or "commitments" should not be seen as a “checklist,” but as areas of missions involvement in which a church grows under the leadership and power of the Holy Spirit.

Below are responses for your church. Personalized responses to the Challenge are available on the "My Acts 1:8 Commitment" page.

For easier printing or to have your own copy of the Eight Commitments, download the PDF of this page.
