Mission Partners

Showing People Christ

Our mission is the be the hands and feet of Jesus by encouraging others to move beyond the four walls of the church, to breakdown any “boxes” that we have put God in, and to bring Jesus (and all He has to offer) to our community, our nation, and to the ends of the earth. We desire to live a faith that is active! (James 214-25 & Ephesians 3:14-21)
