We exist, as a church, to honor God by making and maturing disciples. Christ’s command to make disciples clearly had local and global intention. As a church, we invest in Global Outreach by sending out missionaries from our body, supporting like-minded missionaries sent from sister churches, hosting an annual missions conference, and investing in strategic gospel advancement and church development projects.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”” (Matthew 28:19–20, ESV)
We partner with 18 missionary families who serve in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Our missionary partners are primarily involved in church planting and development through formal Bible training, Bible translation, camp and campus ministries, and medical outreach.
Annually we host a four-day missions conference designed to foster deeper connections between our missionaries and our membership, encourage us to labor more diligently through prayer and the giving of our resources, and seek who the Lord may be calling to serve as laborers in His harvest. (Luke 10:2) Missions conference is always a highlight of our year for the whole family. Our conference is usually scheduled in April.
We regularly support strategic mission projects that the Lord puts in front of us. Annually we invest in gospel advancement through our Thanksgiving Offering. These investments have varied over the years, such as mission clinics in Benin, gospel ministry centers in Myanmar, digital gospel resources, Warai Bibles, camp ministry in New England, and many others.
