The Christmas season is a celebration of God the Father giving His Son to the world as part of the process of redeeming all things to Himself. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given” (Isaiah 9:6 ESV). This is the most extravagant gift ever given, and we are invited to take part in the continual sharing of this gift of Jesus with the world around us.
It is the vision of the NAB International Office to see every NAB church equipping their people to reach into their neighborhoods with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide every NAB pastor and leader who desires it with the resources and training to equip them in this monumental effort. While much has been done already in our movement, we have just scratched the surface, so your support is crucial.
Watch the video above to get a glimpse of how experiencing the gift of Jesus can lead to a desire to find a way to give Christ’s love to your community.
