Our Purpose for Missions

To share the love of Jesus as together we pray for, learn about, and serve in local outreach and international missions. We partner with and support a variety of organization and individuals, both locally and internationally. We encourage one another to "go out" and bring help and hope to a world in need of the Good News of Jesus Christ.

As a church committed to the Great Commission, we are evangelistically oriented in our approach to missions and ministry. We are committed to reaching the lost in our own city primarily through our partnership with Urban Impact Foundation, but we also have international partnerships which help to further our reach for the Gospel globally.

In the past few years we have begun a program to support individual missionaries called from within our local body to serve where God calls them. We are currently supporting missionaries in Japan, East Africa, North Africa, the Dominican Republic and Nigeria.
