Our Mission

We take the good news of Jesus across the streets, across the states, and across the seas. 

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. And how are they to hear without someone preaching? How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News! We are God’s “Plan A” to tell people about Jesus!

Our Core Beliefs

It’s all about Jesus! God’s purpose is above our preferences.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation… All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.
