Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

We believe that the local church is God's primary vehicle for the expansion of His kingdom. Therefore we will invest the largest portion of our mission resources in church planting strategies in various cultural contexts both in the United States and abroad.

We believe that the proper role of the cross-cultural missionary is an equipper of national church planters and a facilitator of church planting movements. Therefore we will strongly support missionaries with a vision for planting indigenous churches with native leadership.

We believe that short-term missions are the most effective method of involving our members in world evangelism. Short-term missions provides believers with the opportunity to experience the work of God in the world and provide an excellent tool for the mobilization of longer-term missionaries. We have a long-term partnership with the Reformed Church in Hanover, Jamaica.
