Our mission statement :

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God; who was born in human flesh to be crucified for our sins so we can be     forgiven of our sins and freely relate to God the Father.
We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is the key to everlasting life for all who believe in Him.
We believe He gave us the Holy Spirit to guide and help us in every aspect of our lives.
We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit today in every believer in Christ
We believe the Bible is true and inspired by God Himself.
We believe the Bible guides and instructs us for our lives on earth and our future in heaven.
We believe God speaks to people directly and through the Bible /Church /other believers /miracles /some circumstances.
We believe God created mankind (all races and cultures) to have a living and loving relationship with Him.
We believe God meant all believers to live in unity with one another; therefore our ministry is non denominational Christian.
We believe Jesus spoke to ALL believers when he commanded us to make disciples of all nations (Mathew 28: 18-20)
We believe therefore the churches are to support their overseas missionaries (Acts 11,13 and 15) (Phil 4: 15-20)

We are committed to reach out to : our fellow missionaries
