We believe there is no substitute for our personal participation in bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations. In 2016, God enabled us to see 110 of our covenant members participate in a mission effort outside of our state. Our mission giving is strengthened by our mission going. Consider Jesus' command:
"...Open your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ready for harvest."
John 4:35
As followers, we are commanded to "look at the fields," which represent the peoples of the nations, ready for spiritual transformation through the gospel of Jesus Christ. We value the power of personally seeing the ready harvest. We desire to bring the praise of every person to the one and only God. Our mission going is focused on three contexts: 1) Local Mission (county and state), 2) National Mission, and 3) Ends of the Earth
" will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8
