The Missional Church

Everything the church does, including worship, Bible study, discipleship, prayer, decision making, and relationships, is a part of God's mission in the world and is meant to be an example of life as God intends. Lexington Avenue Baptist Church is one of God's mission centers in Danville/Boyle County.

"A church with a mission program usually sees mission as one activity alongside many activities of the church - Christian education, worship, acts of service, hospitality and other programs. A missional church focuses all of its activities around its participation in God's mission in the world. That means, it trains people for discipleship and witness; it worships and practices mutual support before the watching world. A church with a mission sends others to witness on its behalf. A missional church understands that the congregation itself is sent by God to proclaim and to be a sign of the reign of God. Just as God sent Jesus, now Jesus sends the church (Jn.20:21)."
