The Outreach & Evangelism Ministry is designed to extend itself, beyond the church walls, to impact the lives of people in our community. One of the ministry’s key focuses is to touch the lost and those in need through the love of Jesus Christ and His Word. Outreach and evangelism are at the heart of God and our goal is to model HIS heart in the community in which we live. Jesus said, `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; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ (Matthew 25:35-36 NASB). It is through the obedience of God’s Word that we radically experience the essence of evangelism and discipleship, while consequently, fulfilling the Great Commission.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19 Outreach & Evangelism events consist of: School Supply Drive, Christmas Drive, Creekwood Village and Sunday Blast in the Park for Tornado Victims.
