Our missions strategy is based on three foundations:

People are created to live in an eternal relationship with God, but are separated from that relationship apart from a personal saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

God has entrusted the local church as a key component of His plan to reach the world with the message of salvation in Christ alone.

We establish and implement goals which lead our church family in committed involvement and investment in activities which accomplish inviting individuals of all nations to a personal relationship with Christ and the resultant planting of indigenous churches internationally.
