But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

Acts 1:8

Jesus commanded us to spread His offer of salvation to everyone.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”
Matthew 28:19

As a result, our church values the giving of time and money to support evangelism through missions to fulfill the Great Commission that Christ gives us in Acts 1:8. We seek to spread the good news of the Gospel throughout our local community, our state, our nation, and the rest of the world.  This can look like supporting new churches throughout the St. Louis area, international mission trips to Quebec and Guatemala, or serving at our local shelter.  We also partner with other Southern Baptist churches to send missionaries around the world to those people groups who have never heard of Christ.  Click below to see some of the ways we are actively working with other believers to spread God’s message throughout this world.
