The Mission!

The greatest commandment is this, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.
The world is hurting and crying out for a savior.  The planet is full of people who are trying to fight daily to find food, water, and most importantly hope.  It is our job, our duty, and our deep desire to meet these people where they are and introduce to them their rescuer, Jesus Christ. We will go to the darkest places around America because we believe with every fiber in our being that His light is strong enough to break through. He has called us to leave the comfort of the American dream and radically live out the life of a true disciple.  We are dropping our nets and following Him, no matter where he takes us, simply because He loves us.
A lawyer asked Jesus, “And, who is my neighbor?”
The answer: The Samaritan who “had compassion” on a random half dead man.
Jesus responds, “GO and DO likewise.”  
12 men flipped the world upside down because they believed Jesus had the power to save. It’s time we do the same.  All for His name’s sake.
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this; to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
