We believe that people tangibly experience the compassion of Christ as we meet their physical, spiritual and emotional needs. This opens wide the door to share the truth and hope of the gospel. Our local outreach ministries are designed to meet both physical and spiritual needs within the community in our pursuit of transformation one life at a time. We are dedicated to strengthening the community around us, caring for the needs of the poor, ministering to nearby growing immigrant communities and seeking justice, mercy and liberation for the vulnerable through the power of the gospel (Deut 24:17-18; Is 1:17; Mt 25:31-46).
