Our Mission

Our mission as a church is to develop “a passion for God and compassion for people.” We want to grow in Christ and take care of our people. We want our people to be spiritually reproductive. Our vision is not to become a larger church, but a church with a larger ministry, making a larger difference for Christ in the Brainerd/Baxter area and on the mission fields around the world.
