International Work in the World
"Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." (Matth. 28: 18-20).
Missionary work is a basic mission of the Church. It's based on the Great Commission and carried out by parishes in cooperation with Church mission organisations. Each Jyväskylä regional parish has its own missionaries and their mission fields.
Missionary work is holistic, containing spiritual and fysical aspects of everyday life. Jyväskylä Parish also supports the work of the Finn Church Aid.
Jyväskylä Parish is a fair parish. In the Fairtrade Church, solidarity is reflected in everyday actions. By favouring Fairtrade products, the congregation ensures that smallholder farmers in developing countries have a better livelihood and the opportunity to decide on their own lives.
