“... and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
Church In The Word believes that every follower of Christ is called to participate in spreading the gospel overseas—if not by going, then by sending and supporting. Our congregation is deeply committed to doing our part to make the gospel available around the world.
Our congregation partners with several long-term missionaries in various international locations. We send regular financial support to three nations, as well as Great Commission Media Ministries (GCMM), and we visit to lend our assistance and advocacy as often as we can. Our Redefined Student Ministry also partners with Love Packages to support ministry through literature distribution all over the world.
