Objectives, Purposes, and Powers: Include ministry outreach, ministerial duties, developing community awareness for those in need, leadership, training and education.

Ministry: Is the body of a religion. A religious ministry is described as the office, duties, or functions of a minister. The function of a Ministry is to require dedicated people who have a heart for reaching people for Christ. Without these people the church certainly would be limited in its ability to fulfill the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:19. Each person is called to share The Gospels and to bear fruit as a response to the Salvation given to us freely by Christ’s act of atonement on the cross. In faith we believe everyone is endowed with a spiritual gift by God, which is fully realized through the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit, whether your gift is in teaching, finance, architect, medicine, or ministering to those who are facing the trials of, and in their life.
