Missions

Our Mission

Offering Gods truth and love to change and enrich lives of people everywhere.

We do this through local and global evangelism, prayer, training, total church education, financial support, recruitment, short term and long term field experience, community outreach, missionary care, social action, a missions resource center, and total mission management.

Because we believe in God’s expressed will and value people, we strive to create a mission active church, which offers hope, service, help and development to those in need.
