What does it mean to be a mission-focused church?
Matthew 28:16-20 calls us to the Great Commission, to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
As part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, one of our denominational core values involves completing the Great Commission, which calls us to be missionaries to the world in which we live.
