Evangelism is the propagation of the gospel and one of the greatest ways to love our neighbor is by communicating to him the good news of the Gospel.
We believe in the duty of the church to go into all the world and make disciples in every nation, tribe, and language. (Matthew 28:18-20). We believe that one major way for this to be done is through sending out and supporting missionaries to every people around the world for short and long-term ministry. (Romans 10:14-15) To that end, we have been and continue to be committed to supporting missions and missionaries through our prayers, financial support, and by sending members of our congregation on mission trips in the U.S. and overseas.
Our goal is to support ministries and individuals who are committed to promoting and spreading and perpetuating the Gospel of Christ in word and deed with an emphasis on one or more of the following:
- planting Reformed churches
- teaching, training, equipping, and mobilizing Reformed pastors
- proclaiming the Gospel and planting Christ-centered, doctrinally-sound churches among unreached people groups
- supporting Gospel-centered mercy ministries that provide health care, hospitality, famine relief, and ministry to the physically and mentally challenged, orphans, widows, refugees, those that are physically abused and/or persecuted Christians.
We currently support missionary families who are serving in Japan, Mexico, West Africa, Kenya, Paraguay, Scotland, and France.
