Vision Statement

To effect the world by the spreading of the Gospel

Mission Statement

The mission is to proclaim to the lost that to the utmost Jesus saves. The trained Evangelist will move hurriedly with anointed enthusiasm. Yes, knowing that God will give the fortitude to withstand the wiles and snares that will try to obstruct the spreading of the gospel message. The responsibility of the Department of Evangelism will be to maintain professional excellence in presenting the Word of God.

And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen." Mark 16:15-20

The ministry of evangelism is designed primarily to win or revive personal commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ with all persons through the development, promotion, and support of all forms and phases of evangelism through the local community and among the present membership of the church. At the core of its function, evangelism is intended to be the greatest portion of ministry within the church, requiring the greatest number of participants to bring the type of change and impact we hope to see in the lives of those we touch. The objectives of the Evangelism Department are to:

~Promote an effective program of evangelism throughout the church community

~Set forth an adequate biblical and theological basis and understanding for evangelism

~Provide training for persons qualified and interested in the field of evangelism and encourage the membership to participate in year round programs of evangelism
