At Fairfield Mountains Chapel we seek to model Jesus’ words to the disciples in
the early pages of the book of Acts:
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you
will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end
of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Jesus’ challenge was for the earliest disciples to start with those closest and work
their way outward in being a witness of God’s love and grace. The book of Acts
chronicles this journey of God’s mission through the followers of Jesus from
Jerusalem to the end of the earth.
Our “Jerusalem” is the local mission and ministries that we support- the Food
pantry, the work of Hickory Nut Gorge Community Outreach, and the needs that
are met for the people that are the closest to us.
Our “Judea and Samaria” include the county, state and national organizations that
meet a variety of needs including food, shelter, ministry to those incarcerated,
medical needs, and support for special needs.
Our “end of the earth” ministries we support include funding for missionaries,
mission training organizations like EQUIP and support for those who work are
literally reaching people who are at the “end of the earth” from Lake Lure.
