Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever – Heb 13:8

Missions

We believe that the single most important task given to us as a a body of believers is the proclamation of the gospel throughout the world. It is only when people hear the good news of Jesus Christ that they truly have hope and to that end we have been led by the Lord  to support both financially and in prayer a number of missionaries whom God has called to this purpose in various countries around the world.

Rom 10:13-17   For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

Use the map below to see if you can identify the parts of the world where our missionaries are currently sharing the gospel.
