Missions

Go with us

Once you have gathered with us, and grown with us, then the next step is to go with us to tell the good news of Jesus to NWA, the nation, and the world.

This is very exciting and our church desires to be a church that is gospel-driven and others-centered. We have weekend opportunites here in NWA. We have week-long trips within the nation (USA) and the nations. We also have extensive trip opportunities that can be 2-3 weeks (or longer) to different nations around the globe. The purpose remains the same for all opportunities: Go to share Jesus through good news and good deeds. And a neat feature of our church is that any member (in good standing) can apply for a scholarship for trips to the nations. This scholarship is for half the cost of the trip (up to $1,000). This is rare and we are grateful to be able to help people "go".

We believe the Bible tells us how to think about missions. In Acts 1:8, Jesus said we are to be His witnesses "in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” From where Jesus was standing, that meant the local (Northwest Arkansas) and global (nations) areas. All tribes and nations will be represented in heaven one day. We find great joy and fulfillment in taking Jesus to these areas so that God's glory would spread among the nations.
