Our heartbeat is to take the Gospel not only to our community, but to our nation and to our world. It is a privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church to make disciples of all nations.

"For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. But how can they call on Him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about Him? And how can they hear without a preacher? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!" Romans 10:13-15
