Vision and Mission

Reach | Teach | Train | Send

Our Vision contains four key steps which are crucial to fulfilling the command of Jesus in the Great Commission. We wish to REACH, TEACH, TRAIN, and SEND God's people with the message of restoration ... not condemnation:

We desire to Reach individuals so that the love of Christ can restore them back to their proper place in God. (Evangelism)

We must then Teach individuals the Word of God so that they are not ignorant of God nor His principles. (Discipleship)

We strive to Train individuals to be effective followers of Christ, and how to effectively proclaim the Gospel of God. (Preparation)

Finally, we want to Send individuals who were once lost and broken, who have been taught and trained in God and His Word, out to effectively spread the Word of God to others. (Planting)

Our endeavor is to empower individuals through teaching and preaching the Good News of God’s Word, enabling them to overcome the challenges of life by the power of Restoration.
