What is the mission of the church?
The mission of our church is to make and grow disciples for Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20). This mission involves several important activities:
- Preaching the gospel in church and other available venues
- Teaching the whole counsel of God in public and from house to house (Acts 20:20, 27)
- Equipping the saints for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12)
- Raising up and sending out missionaries from our own congregation (Acts 13:1-4)
- Contributing to the support of missionaries from other congregations (Philippians 4:18)
There are countless other good things that we could busy ourselves with as a church, but we are determined to not let other things distract us from fulfilling the mission to which Christ has called us.
