Aims and Objectives

 

Looking up, Reaching out

Because people of every type and every generation matter to God. He wants them to know Him and be wholly devoted to Him. His chosen method of contact is through a local church. He has entrusted the Good News about His Son, Jesus Christ, to the ordinary men and women who make up those churches. We need to come to terms with what that means for us and our generation. Our response matters for our friends.
