The Missions Ministry is mandated by God to love, care for and to meet the needs of humanity physically and spiritually. We especially target the less fortunate among us, while upholding the redemptive truths and righteousness of Jesus Christ. This will be done on a national and international level.
There are many persons in our society today that needs great help. They need to know that someone loves and cares for them. The Mission’s Ministry has been called in such a time like this to make disciples, to feed the poor and care for the dying.
The word of God in James 2:15-17 says – “If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food and one of you say unto them, depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone”. The word of God also says in Matthew 5:16 – “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven”.
The Missions Ministry under the new movement was formed on October 1, 2018 under the leadership of Sister Carmen Lewis. The purpose of this Ministry is to reach those who are outside the walls of our Church with the message and the love of Jesus Christ.
To share God’s grace and love by meeting the needs of people so that they can come to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ.
The Vision Statement of the Missions Ministry is to be a spiritually healthy and growing church community of Christ followers, which shares the love of Christ by bringing good news to the less fortunate and caring for their needs, as expression of the gospel.
To be a Ministry which focuses on community outreach and church building. To be a Ministry that foster partnerships with various entities, in order to meet the need of the less fortunate among us.
