Missions & Outreach
Our philosophy for missions and outreach is centered on the desire to glorify God and fulfill the Great Commission by helping to establish His church among all people groups on earth.
We believe this happens by obeying God’s call throughout the Bible to go to all peoples and proclaim the Good News. Our supported missionaries and ministries accomplish this goal with a wide variety of work and skills such as Bible translation, evangelism and discipleship, and church planting.
Based on this philosophy, our missions and outreach efforts are focused on three areas throughout the world:
We encourage our church body to spread the Good News throughout our local community. Many families in our church work alongside and support organizations in our community such as:
- Camp of Champions USA (COCUSA)
- Rural Home Missionaries Association (RHMA)
- Salem Ranch
- Berean Prison Ministries
- Southside Mission
- Women’s Pregnancy Center
- Young Life of Tazewell County
Members of our church body work throughout our country in support of national ministries that include:
