But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
— Acts 1:8

We believe that when we follow Jesus, we make a positive difference not just in our own community, but across our city and beyond.  As a local Church, we are also called to the nations.  Burnside Family Church from the very beginning has had a strong vision for missions. Many of our congregation have served as missionaries in places like Sudan, Ethiopia, Yemen, Bolivia, Brazil, India, China and PNG.  Our passion for the nations is knowing that as we follow the command of Jesus to go into the nations, we get to make a difference in our world.
