Evangelism Ministry

Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The aim of our Evangelism Ministry is to go out in to the community to share the Gospel of Christ. We encourage individuals to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and assist them to become His Disciples.

Evangelism Ministry Mission Statement: 
To exemplify the love of God by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Our Mission, Goal & Purpose:

  • Support the church’s mission statement of ” making disciples who know Jesus Christ personally and intimately”.
  • Execute the Evangelism Mission Statement by exemplifying the love of God by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
  • Bring people to Christ.  We do this by reaching out into the community to share the Good News.
  • Through fellowship, prayer, sharing of scripture, or offering resources for assistance.

Our Evangelism Ministry goes out and tells the “Good News” of how man is separated from God by sin.  God sent Jesus, His Son, to die on a cross and pay the price for our sins.  If we turn away from sin, accept Jesus as our Savior and follow Him, we will be forgiven of our sins and have a relationship with God. 

If you have a passion for ministering to the needy and those who live in the surrounding areas, we welcome you into our Evangelism Ministry.

Ushers

Everyone who enters into the House of the Lord is welcome. “Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.” – Romans 15:7
Mission Statement
The ushers primary mission is to SERVE. Their goal is to exemplify Christ and their Church through their service. Ushers serve the Lord by recognizing their spiritual gifts, and enthusiastically investing them into the ministry of the Church. They believe, “A true servant is loyal and obedient to the Master – even when it’s not convenient.”

Purpose
An usher is one who serves as an official doorkeeper; therefore, ushers escort disciples and guests to their seats as well as assist with any needs during the worship service. An usher is usually the first or second point of contact when someone enters the church, so it is important that all are greeted in love and with a “HOLY” smile. Since ushers give the first impression of their Pastor and Church family, they work especially hard to make sure that everyone feels welcome and at home.

The Ushers Ministry meets on the Second Tuesday of each month at 8:00 PM
