  1. The Church is sent by Jesus Christ (John 17:18 ; 20:21, Luke 9:2 ; Matt 28 : 19–20; Acts 1:8 )
  2. The Church is sent with the Cross (1 Cor 1:18 , Eph 2:16 , Col 2:14 , 1 Pet2:24, 2 Cor 5:17 –24)
  3. The Church is sent in Community (Acts 2:42 –47; 5:42; John 13:34 –35; 1 John 3:16 –17)
  4. The Church is sent to every Culture (John 1:14 ; Matt 20:28 ; Acts 17:22 –34; Luke 5:29 )
  5. The Church is sent for the King and His Kingdom (Matt 10:7 ; 25:34; Luke 4:43 ; Rev 11:15 –17; Jer 10:7 ; John 18:36 )
