Jesus came teaching us to love one another and love the world around us. Our desire is to see that lived out in real and practical ways. To that end, we spend a great ammount of effort on projects that are outside of the walls of our church building. Through our missions team we help make sure that the truth of Jesus is shared around the globe and in our own community. Through our benevolence team we care for one another and the needy around us. And through our compassion and justice team we mobilize ourselves to give more than just money, but to become fully aware and involved in the brokenness found throughout our world. Below you will find a list of the various people and organizations we are committed to.
Missions is our response to the Great Commission by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ cross-culturally through evangeleism, discipleship, Bible translation, church planting and church leadership development by giving priority to the least reached.

Along with the financial support that we provide through our missions team and our benevolence team, we desire to find ways to take an active role along side organizations that are serving to show the compassion of God while working against injustice and oppression. This is done by partnering with these organizations through events like our "Christmas Store," as well as participating with them in their regular activities.
