We reflect God's character by loving people and sharing Jesus both locally and abroad. We believe that nothing promotes peace and health across our world like the spreading of the gospel. It both renews individual lives and reweaves the fabric of whole communities. Therefore, we are making it our mission to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). We do this by humbly serving, living life with, and loving all people. We desire to build a generation that understands that each of us is called to be missional in every area of our lives, and seek out opportunities to share the good news of Jesus to people who do not know Him whether that is at our home, neighborhood, city, nation or world.
