To comply with the Lord Jesus Christ’s Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), we are committed to spread gospel to the community and to the end of the world. At present, the church supports missionaries around the world, missionaries of Christian organizations and ministries involved in the community. The church directly encourages the church congregations to involve in missionary work: commitment and ministry in the name of Jesus to serve the community and society; follow the Great Commission and preach the Gospel of Christ starting from the community to the end of the earth.
