Mission Initiatives

Invite People to Christ

We are called to share our witness of Jesus Christ with those who are waiting to hear the redeeming words of the gospel. As they become new in Christ, many will join us on a life-changing faith journey. In community, we encourage and help them deepen their discipleship and develop their gifts and talents for Christ’s mission. With us they are sent into their neighborhoods to share Christ’s peace through their witness, compassion, and justice and peacemaking.
