Ministry & Missions
As God’s people and grateful to be a part of His Family, we are dedicated to the Kingdom Call Jesus gave before he departed. Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go an make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”…
We agree this is our mission! How does that play out? Well, we are told in Acts 1:8, “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.” It is our desire to seek the Father’s will in accomplishing this task.
