Mission Ministries

Mission:

 

The General Missionary Ministry was established from the premise of the Great Commission by going into the world to “teach the gospel and to love the Lord, your God, with all your heart; with all your soul;  with all your mind; and to love your neighbor as yourself.”  It carries the responsibility of transmitting the Gospel from one generation to another, of preserving its purity and of proclaiming it to all creatures.

 

This Ministry is generally made up of women who take on and complete various projects, e.g., rolling bandages, sewing quilts, visiting the sick, distributing clothing and socks, collecting and distributing food and providing fellowship, Christian witness and strength to those in the local community and around the world.
