OUR MISSION FIELD

We believe in fulfilling Christ’s commission to be His "...witnesses in Jerusalem [LOCALLY] ... in all Judea [NATIONALLY] ... and to the ends of the earth [INTERNATIONALLY]" (Acts 1:8). That’s why each year we give ten percent of our resources to share God's love and spread the good news of Jesus Christ.

LOCALLY

We actively support nearby ministries that help individuals who are homeless; have unplanned pregnancies; and are in foster care, nursing homes and prisons. We also serve the benevolent needs of those within our church body and community by providing for them in practical ways. In addition, every summer our junior high youth participate in local outreaches, and every semester our small groups take part in serving the community in various capacities.

 

NATIONALLY 

We focus on planting life-giving churches across the U.S. through the Association of Related Church (ARC), a church-planting organization with over 200 partners that provides training, funding and relationship support to couples called to start a church. Every other summer, our senior high youth also participate in a mission trip to a specified location in the U.S. On alternate years, they serve abroad.

 

 

INTERNATIONALLY 

 We spread our mission efforts around the globe, providing financial support to more than a half dozen international missions in countries such as Israel, Mexico, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Zimbabwe. Moreover, since 1997 we have concentrated a large part of our energy and resources on Love of Christ Church India, a ministry we began in the Punjab region that trains native pastors and evangelists to preach the Gospel in villages where Christ's name has never been heard.
