With God's blessing, the ministry of the gospel of Jesus Christ produces the conversion of sinners and the spiritual growth of Christians. We are committed, therefore, to be on the advance with the gospel in our community and to the ends of the earth by equipping the saints for their role in making and growing disciples wherever the Lord sends them and by participating with other churches and ministries in gospel-promoting endeavors (Matt. 16:18; 28:19-20; 1 Cor. 9:19-23; Eph. 4:11, Eph. 4:15-16; 1 Pet. 3:15).
