-Spreading the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth
-Building up the spiritual life of people through fellowship,
worship and the commitment to God's word
We are a rural church that was started from a bible study in 1800. As part of sharing the Gospel message for the past 200+ years, our commitment is to obey the Lord Jesus Christ through His word:
The Great Commandment:
Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with
all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest
commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
The Great Commission:
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."
