God called the Church to bear witness of Jesus around us and throughout the world (Acts 1:8 and Mathew 28:16-20). The mission of the church is accomplished when men and women, young and old, embrace God's calling to them. By accepting our mission, in obedience to God, we become messengers, in words and deeds, of God's love for the world. As a part of the body of Christ, we partner with other churches and organizations locally and around the world. Together we do God's mission!
