Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations..." (Matthew 28.19)
As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ within and beyond our own community. We seek to follow the example of the first disciples who obeyed the commission Jesus gave them in Acts 1:8, ...”you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth". As a church family we also support missions because when we bless others we are blessed ourselves. We receive great encouragement and inspiration when we share across cultural, geographical and political boundaries what God is doing in the world.
We partner with others practically, prayerfully and financially to see lives and communities impacted both locally and overseas.
