J esus said, “…go and make disciples of all nations…”(Matt 28:19). This is the marching order for churches. Missions is our human response to the Divine Commission. In obedience to this command and fulfil the Great Commission, PJEFC has included in its own mission statement the following:
“We in PJEFC aspire that each one be a discipled, involved, committed, caring, mission-oriented member of the body of Christ”
The church has therefore undertaken two significant roles – being a sending and a supporting church.
In the sending role, the focus is to identify those who have a growing burden to enter the fields of potential harvest, pray with them and prepare them for the work. In the supporting role, the focus is on funding and encouraging people or organisations that are actively serving in the missions field.
All cross-cultural ministries, overseas and locally, are under the purview of the Missions Department.
Some of PJEFC initiatives in local cross-cultural ministries:
Persatuan Wanita Indonesia
Reaching out to the Indonesian ladies at PJEFC to create a fellowship for mutual edification and encouragement in order to nurture their faith, ministering to their needs while discipling them into leadership for further evangelism.
Overseas Students Fellowship
Reaching out to the overseas students who are studying in Malaysia to introduce the Good News to them and disciple the believers into maturity.
PJEFC partners with Semenanjung Orang Asli (SEMOA) in this ministry. Our
aim is to introduce the Good News to the indigenous-people (“orang asli”) community and demonstrate His love in action by lifting up their standards of living through community works, medical clinics, donations of essential supplies and tuition programmes.
