We take seriously Christ’s commission to “make disciples of all peoples” (Matthew 28:19-20) and believe that calling others to salvation in Christ and enlisting them to obediently follow Him is our standing assignment until His return. We understand this task to include four critical components:
EVANGELISM – We bring people to faith in Christ by means of Spirit-empowered outreach. In doing this we fully disclose the high cost of discipleship and call people to the kind of radical sacrifice that Christ called taking up our cross and following Him.
BAPTISM – We call on new converts to publicly identify with Christ and his church through believer’s baptism by immersion.
TEACHING – We encourage all believers in the life-long process of studying God’s Word with the view that knowing him will effect a loving and serving worship.
TRAINING – We seek to identify believers’ spiritual gifts and help them cultivate and use them for the mutual building up of the body of Christ.
We understand our responsibility to send church-planters and otherwise support disciple-making as a global effort.
