We believe the mission of the church to be as Christ described it in Luke 4:18:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me, to preach the Gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
We are mindful of our Lord’s words when He said in John 9:4-5,
I must work the works of Him who sent me, while it is day; the night cometh when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
We believe that we are left in the world to carry on His work through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of the living Lord until that night comes when we are all taken away and the world is left in darkness.
