Join the Mission

“People cannot call on Jesus if they don’t believe in Him. People cannot believe in Jesus if they have not heard of Him. People cannot hear of Jesus unless someone preaches to them. People cannot have faith in a message of Christ if indeed they have not heard the word of Christ. So, consequently, all who do not hear the message of the cross and respond with faith in Christ are still dead in their sins and in need of a Savior. This is why the call to missions is serious: It is a matter of life and death for millions around the world.”
