Following Christ:  Putting Feet to Our Faith
The New Testament tells us we are to be a witness to our faith -- that means putting feet to our faith!  Click here to download and print a copy of our new Missions Brochure which contains information on local, mainland, and international opportunities.
Where will you GO and put feet to your faith?

"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." - Matthew 28:19
