What’s in a Name? The Story Behind the Naming of Commission Church

The name “Commission Church” grew organically out of a desire for our name and our mission to be synonymous.

The early church in Acts started with people coming together and praying. It was an exciting time of transformation and learning to exist and grow as a community. Today, many choices for worship and ministry vie for the time and energy of believers.

The members of our small but tightknit community come from different church backgrounds and stages of life. Despite all the uncertainties inherent in starting something new, we are united by a single conviction: God has called us to a church plant.

What we’re doing requires a lot of faith, i.e. trusting in God when we can’t see everything He is doing and will do. So far the church planting process has certainly been a walk of faith as we do our best to follow obediently God’s plan step-by-step with Him as the Divine GPS (God Positioning Satellite).

The last words of Jesus, famously known as the Great Commission, charge all Christians to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:19 NIV).

Jesus concurrently declared that “All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matt. 28:18 NIV). The definition of “commission” is “the act of granting power and authority to carry out a particular task.”

The name Commission Church is a constant reminder of our mission: to make disciples of all nationalities for Jesus Christ and to be a disciple-developing ministry. The gospel is ready to bring transformation to the lives of people of all nationalities.

We trust that God will reward those who diligently seek him. God is happy with the person who trusts Him, His character, and what He’s going to do. We are stepping out by faith and we believe that God is pleased with that.
