Evangelistic Ministry

The Vision and Mission Committee met on August 8th and August 29th and is suggesting the following:

Vision Statement - Ultimate Plan

Mission Statement – Ensures what we desire to accomplish/deliver based on Church needs.

To participate in the advancement of the Kingdom of God through our worship services, Christian education and various ministries, as the gospel of Jesus Christ is communicated through faith and works to a multicultural congregation.

Scripture:  Luke 14:23 “Then the Master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes, and make them come in so that my house will be full.”  Matthew 28: 19, 20b “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
