MISsions

One of Jesus' final statements on the earth was, "you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." From this statement, we understand that Jesus calls us to advance his ministry 1) locally, 2) nationally and 3) internationally. That's why our church financially supports ministries, non-profit agencies and church planting efforts locally, nationally and all around the world.
