At Grace Church of DuPage we exist to magnify the worth of God by exalting his name, equipping the saints and evangelizing the lost. One way this is accomplished is when the local church, acting in obedience, sends its members to make disciples of the nations. These members are missionaries, or “sent ones,” who go with authority preaching, baptizing and teaching others. Our objective in missions at Grace Church of DuPage is to plant churches and strengthen existing local churches.
Grace Church plays an active role in the preparation and sending of missionaries. It is our firm belief that there should be a strong tie between the local church and the mission field.
