The common mission is to lead all people who will hear, to the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ and to a full expression of truth as found in the Holy Scriptures. To nurture believers into a growing, balanced, mature Christian life that utilizes their spiritual gifts for ongoing ministries both local and global.
