Trust . Join . Grow . Serve . Reach
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20
Jesus calls us to a worldwide mission extending beyond our city, state and nation to every person in every people group of every nation on the face of the earth. To fulfill this Great Commission, we endeavor to walk with people through the five stages of our First Steps Journey of Spiritual Maturity:
1. We reach sinners who TRUST in the Lord and become CHRISTIANS.
2. We baptize them as they JOIN the Church and become MEMBERS.
3. We teach them as they GROW in Christ and become DISCIPLES.
4. We equip them as they SERVE in the Body and become MINISTERS.
5. We send them out to REACH lost unbelievers as MISSIONARIES.
God is working in us to turn sinners into missionaries.
