Evangelism

"The Call of All Believers"

Our mission is to educate the church on the importance of evangelism and sharing our faith in the community and world. The ministry of evangelizing our faith is the calling of all believers of Jesus Christ. It is the goal and objective of the evangelism witness team to provide key information, modern resources, and training opportunities for churches to reach their potential in bringing persons to Jesus Christ and develop a faith-driven life of discipleship.
