We believe that God has commanded

every Christian to take part in spreading the Gospel to the world through the local church.

We believe the mission of our church

is to be actively engaged in fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

As a church we spend much time, effort, and resources ministering

right here in our city, but we feel just as committed to taking the Gospel throughout the world. We seek to do this through praying for more laborers and current missionaries, financially supporting missions projects on a monthly basis, involving our own church members in short term missions trips, and ministering to our missionaries by letter.

Currently our church supports 145 missions projects

across the world. The members of our church have committed to giving more than $190,000 annually through Faith Promise Missions!
