This mission is carried out by exalting Christ through evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, worship and ministry. We will engage in preaching, teaching, giving, sharing and serving our fellowman in love. The Holy Bible will be the bases of our mission, message, means, methods and mandate.
Our vision is to be a people after God's own heart and to be a Church with a passion for God and people. Our purpose is to glorify God through the spiritual transformation of the individual, family, community and world through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
"Then Jesus came to them and said, "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 I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of age." Matt 28:18-20
