---Why Our Church

 What We Believe


The Great Commandment

Mark 12:30—31 ESV

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.

To accomplish Jesus’ Great Commandment, we wholeheartedly pursue loving God and loving people”.

The Great Commission
Matthew 28:19—20 ESV

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age”.

To accomplish Jesus’ Great Commission, we relentlessly pursue making disciples in every nation, all over the world.
