What Is Our Mission?
Our mission is that which Jesus gave to the entire Christian Church: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (Matthew 20:18-20).
How Is The Mission of Jesus Christ Fulfilled Among Us?
- We baptize according to Jesus’ command. If you or any of your family members are in need of baptism, we will provide instruction and preparation to receive this vital Christian sacrament.
- We teach the Word of God, according to Jesus’ command. We do so in worship, in Sunday school and Bible class and by mutual encouragement as between friends.
- We administer the Lord’s Supper for the confirmed membership of the congregation. (We offer Bible instruction for those interested in joining the congregation as communing members in joint confession of the Biblical faith. We want you to commune with us.)
