We believe that you were created by Almighty God to be His hands, feet and voice to this world. God is at work in the world, and He desires that you join with Him in caring for the world that He loves so very much. God wants you to share His love where you are - as a student, mother, teacher, fireman, or whatever you do. God wants you to reach out to the people in your life. That might mean inviting a friend to church or showing love to those in need around you.
God invites you to participate in the greatest, largest, most diverse cause in history - His kingdom. The opportunities for normal, everyday Christians to become involved in local and worldwide missions are growing all the time.
Here you will find stories of service by members of the Body of Christ in this place. Perhaps your own story might someday join with theirs proclaiming salvation in Christ.
