Missions Ministry

Our church takes seriously the mandate that Jesus gave His church in Acts 1:8, “You shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

I am so grateful that the church was obedient to this mandate over the centuries- otherwise we wouldn’t be here today!  Likewise, we are committed to be faithful witnesses in our “Jerusalem” – the city of Fresno, as well as throughout the world.

We partner with many local, national, and international missionaries to spread the gospel to everyone on earth. We have included a listing of all of our mission partners, a description of their mission, and their mission organization’s website.
