GLOBAL OUTREACH

MATTHEW 28:18-20


Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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 teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."


PURPOSE


As Jesus followers, we believe it is important to bring transformation by loving and serving God's people - where ever they are. We partner with International, domestic and local agencies and work directly with families, schools, businesses, parks, townships, and other ministry organizations. Opportunities to serve others are all around us: across the world, across the state across the city and/or the street. Service is done through our LifeGroups, small groups, families, and individuals.
