Benton's Vision for Missions
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (NIV)
The Benton Church Family holds dearly the commission that Jesus gave to His Church in Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8.
Every believer is to be a witness of the Gospel that has transformed his/her life. We seek to do this by how we live and by what we say. We desire to intentionally reach out to all people everywhere with Christ's love and truth, beginning in our local community.
Benton's Evangelism Committee gives training and motivation for each of us to be effective sharers of the Gospel with all persons around us (I Peter 3:5). Our Missions Committee also leads us in our world-wide outreach.

"Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'?
I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest." John 4:35 (NIV)
World Mission Focus
On the first Wednesday of the month World Missions Focus is held in Benton's Reese Room at 7:00 PM. The meetings include a guest speaker, often a missionary or a representative of a mission organization. Highlights of missionary letters received during the month are reviewed for prayer. We would be pleased to have you join us for this time of friendship, fellowship, and prayer.
