Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't.
- John Piper
The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.
- Henry Martyn
The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.
- Hudson Taylor
