In the Great Commission Survey, we want to find out from Christians all
over Australia how many are fulfilling the Great Commission, how they are doing it, how
regularly and what their walk with God is like.
Current statistics from USA state that only 2% of those
professing to be Christians regularly share their faith. We would like to find out how the church in Australia
fares when put under the same microscope.
Have we, as the church in this nation, so embraced the
Australian 'she'll be right, mate' attitude that we have become blase about eternity? Are we
so comfortable being in our churches and our worship and knowing that we're okay eternity-wise, that we
neglect the purpose of the church - to reach out to the lost. We are meant to be a rescue ship, not a pleasure
cruiser. We are to save those who are drowning in the sea of sin, even if they don't know
Another analogy that the Christian life can be likened to is the
soldier, hence our name 'Soldiers of the Cross'. It's not our idea - the Bible calls us soldiers and talks
about fighting in a battle, with weapons of warfare. We know that our enemy is three-fold - the world, the
flesh and the Devil. When our Aussie soldiers go to war, they are usually fighting for something - to free
people who have been oppressed or to possess certain land. In our battle against the Devil, what or who are
we fighting for? Are we just fighting for ourselves or are we fighting for others to be free from the
'one who has taken them captive'? Are we fighting to possess this land for the Kingdom of God?
And if we aren't in a battle against the Devil, does that not
speak volumes that perhaps we aren't doing anything for God, or even that we don't belong to God in the first
"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that
he will also reap." Galatians
"Examine yourself and see
whether you are in the faith" 2 Corinthians 13:5
"Not everyone who says to me,
'Lord, Lord', will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven"
"Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord....’, And then I will declare to
them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew
So if you haven't been sharing your faith, start today. The
Australian Beliefs Survey is an easy way to share your faith and see people
challenged, convicted and saved, as well as gaining valuable statistics for the church in this nation.
Or if you are fearful, our Evangelism Training courses are a great way to
be encouraged and motivated to reach the lost and give you valuable tools to do so.
If you have 'examined yourself' and are not sure how you will
appear before God on the Day of Judgement, then perhaps you need to look at the Gospel afresh and make yourself right with God...TODAY. Then go out and share your
faith with someone. Then be sure to complete our Great Commission Survey yourself.
