Vision Statement…..TELL – TEACH – TRAIN

We are committed to TELL the lost of the redeeming love of Jesus Christ, TEACH the Word of God and TRAIN men, women, youth and children to be Spirit-filled leaders in our world.


 

Connecting to God and each other

Coming together is a great way for each of us to grow in our faith. Reading our Bibles and praying are great ways to get closer to God, but each of us has important lessons to impart to one another. When we come together in fellowship, we teach each other things. God gives us a gift of learning and growing when we come together in fellowship we show each other how to live as God wants us to live, and how to walk in His footsteps.

Fellowship Makes Us Stronger

No matter where we are in our faith, fellowship provides us with strength. Being around other believers gives us the chance to learn and grow in our faith. It demonstrates to us why we believe and is the excellent food for our souls.

  • Niger – work established in 2009: one organized church; 138 members. Both countries located on AFRICA region. Niger was part of many African empires and gained independence in 1960. Both countries have a history of slavery.  In Niger 99% of the population is Muslim.  Out of 37 people groups in Niger, 29 are considered unreached.

French is the official language of both countries.  Poverty is common in both countries.  Despite slavery being abolished in both countries they still face human trafficking of various sorts.  Pray that the Church will know how to engage the majority population and share the love of Christ.
