Being a disciple of Jesus Christ brings us into one body with all believers to see the gospel reach from Lima to the ends of the earth.

It’s our mission from God. We link arms with our neighbors to reach our neighbors, with our friends to reach our community, and with our partners to reach the ends of the earth.

 
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
– Matthew 25

 

 
 

 
 

Faith Promise is an agreement with God to be personally involved in ministry to others around the world through giving beyond tithing. It is our privilege to partner with the work God is already doing, helping His Kingdom break in. By Faith, I Promise.

Together we make specific commitments (promises)–that stretch us a little (faith)–of what we will do to support important local and global mission endeavors in the coming year. This giving is all done beyond the general budget and never receives money from regular tithes and offerings.

Choosing Partners

Our missions team seeks like-minded mission and ministry partners who are passionate about making disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to extend “local compassion on a global scale” by coming alongside and supporting organizations and individuals with both financial and human resources.
