Bangkok Immanuel Church Challenged by Mission Conference to Advance Gospel

Mission in Action

Bangkok, Thailand – While participating in the ‘Mission in Action’ Conference organized recently by the local churches and mission agencies in Thailand, the ministers of Bangkok Immanuel Church were greatly challenged to advance the spread of Gospel in the nation and beyond.

Despite a mere 1.2% of the country’s population being Christians, the ministers were reminded during the theme talks and workshops to cast a wider vision of fulfilling the Great Commission both in Thailand and all corners of the world.  In addition to that, the testimonies of many long-term missionaries in Thailand further spurred the ministers to persevere in mission even to win over one more soul.

It gives much encouragement to the ministers that some of the participating missionaries  also offered to support the local church in terms of mission training.

May church mission continue to expand further in the days heading to Christmas as the ministers carry on with the fire ignited during the conference to reach many lost souls with the Gospel.
