Missions

"...you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 ESV)

 

Our desire...

...is for the name of Jesus to be exalted and His fame to be known.  We believe God has called us to spread the Gospel not only around the world, but also right here in our own back yard.  That's why we are committed to reaching people near and far.

Our priorities...

  • Evangelism (Rom 10:14-15)
  • Church planting (1 Tim 3:15; Titus 1:5)
  • Church strengthening (Acts 15:41; 18:23; 20:17-36)
  • Unreached people groups (Rom 15:20-21)
  • Sending missionaries from our congregation (Acts 13:1-3)
  • Caring for missionaries (Phil 4:15-16; Titus 3:13; 3 John 5-8)
  • Local church accountability (3 John 6)
  • Good deeds in Christ’s name (Matt 5:16; Gal 6:10)
