Mission Statement


Mission: To participate in the body of Christ in responsible evangelism of youth, presenting them with the person, work and teachings of Christ and discipling them into the local church. We continue to be geared to the times, but anchored to the rock. As our culture adjusts, the methodology adapts, but the gospel never changes. Vision: As a part of the body of Christ, to see every young person in every people group in every nation have the opportunity to make an informed decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ and to become part of a local church.

Description


We are committed to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all young people and always seek to do so with urgency, using the most culturally acceptable presentations. We are further committed to provide a ministry of discipleship for each new believer, and to work in partnership with others who desire to accomplish the same mission. We are committed to the Word of God as the foundation and final authority for life and ministry. We discipline ourselves to study it diligently, apply it daily and teach its truth to young people. We believe the church is the expression of the body of Christ and are committed to work in partnership with the local church in fulfilling the Great Commission. Knowing the size and urgency of our task, we are committed to mobilize all available resources of young people, adults, prayer and finance to accomplish our mission. We are committed to a life of integrity through personal and organizational accountability in lifestyle, relationships, finances, ministry management and responsible evangelism.

Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe: the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
