Mission & Vision



The mission is not to simply to begin a new ministry without a cause, but rather one (ministry) that caters salvation and the freedom of biblical teaching to the world and its congregation. It is our obligation also to do outreach and provide community services that support practical non-religious needs; i.e. (mentorship, after school hours tutoring, etc.) Therefore, each member is a minister by whom all are to evangelize the unsaved and meet the needs of the community that they may profess faith in Jesus Christ.  According to scripture; “…The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’” Roman 10:8-11
