The command given by Christ to his disciples after his resurrection was to "make disciples" of all nations.
Our first goal of church missions is to edify believers and proclaim Christ to unbelievers in our own community. We believe that being a strong local church is a requirement for being good sending church. Further, we believe that our immediate area is included in "all the nations" of Jesus' command to make disciples (Matthew 28:19).
As we are established and strengthened, we desire to send and support people with a similar theology and philosophy of biblical ministry in other areas of the world. This includes everything from local church planting and pastor-sending to international pastoral training and frontier missions.
Our desire in local outreach is to cultivate a "culture of evangelism." We desire to make gospel proclamation a part of who we are. We desire to preach the gospel in every legitimate biblical way, both in our daily lives, and as a church in organized events. Further, we desire to support and to start other churches that will also carry out the tasks of the Great Commission, including evangelism.
