Jesus gave his followers a mission to “Go, make disciples of all nations. . . .” Because we believe every person was created for life with God, we seek to proclaim the glorious message about Jesus to the world. We have partnered with people, families and organizations in order that people from various countries can know the love of God. Our goal as a church is to also train up and send people from within our own gathering to go to the world, serve and proclaim Jesus through actions and words.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
