The mission starts right where we live within our own communities and cities. Although we initiate and host many things, we also recognize the importance of partnering with others. We host community block parties, yard sales, local sports teams, and more. We partner with local schools, the Kingsville 4th of July parade, and serve at the Perry Hall fair among other things. In addition to the immediate work at and near our church, we also desire to partner with other organizations in our area because we know we cannot do it alone.
Our partnerships with different churches, ministries, and organizations are united together under one mission: to glorify God by making disciples of all peoples with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. Our desire to be a church the serves and blesses the people within our community and city.
