“To know the will of God, you need an open Bible and an open map.”
- William Carey

Local Missions

We believe that God has placed us in West Plains to seek and pursue the well-being of West Plains (Jer. 29:7). Not just the physical well-being of the people of West Plains, but also their eternal well-being. Whether through our food pantry, or our weekly meal for the city, our goal is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman, and child of West Plains so that they are reconciled to God and walk in a personal and committed relationship with Him.

Regional Missions

There are over 6 million people who call Missouri home. Our desire is to partner with other churches in Missouri to strengthen existing churches, and plant new churches, so that every Missourian, regardless of location, has access to the gospel and healthy local churches.

National Missions

There are roughly 281 million people living in North America who do not know Christ. We seek to partner with the North American Mission Board, and other like-minded churches, to impact that lostness. (John 4:1-42; Acts 8:4-8)

International Missions

6 out of every 10 people on our planet live in a place with little to no access to the gospel. That’s almost 4 billion people who, unless something changes, will be born, live, and die without ever hearing the gospel. In places like these, we partner with the International Mission Board and other organizations to see healthy, local churches planted. (Acts 16:9-10; Rom. 15:20-21)
