Local Outreach

Our mission is to transform lives to transform the world. We joyfully follow Jesus' command to be His witnesses in our community, our nation and around the world. (Acts 1:8)
We follow Jesus' example and minister compassionately for He said whenever we feed, clothe or visit the poor, sick or imprisoned that we are doing it for Him. (Matthew 25:40).
