Missions

missions

The Temple Missions Ministry is dedicated to the vision set by our church to live in the Kingdom NOW as apprentices of Jesus Christ. As part of this vision, our Mission Team, using the Holy Bible as our standard, will follow the command of Jesus Christ to make disciples of the Nations, known as The Great Commission. In Acts 1:8, Jesus commands the apostles to “be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Our Missions Ministry will equip its members to fulfill the biblical mandate of going into the entire world, will support its members both prayerfully and financially, and will deploy them to engage in the ministry to which God has called them.
