The Church with a Mission
The mission of the St. John Baptist Church is evangelistic: to make disciples for Jesus Christ [Matthew 28:18-19]; to promote the preaching of GOD's word in an atmosphere of prayer and praise, under the direction of the Holy Spirit. We are dedicated to a ministry of sharing God's blessings; therefore, we generously support global [Acts 16:9], and home [Acts 6:1-3] missions. We will strive as a congregation for a just society for the least of God's children, in civic engagements and in economic empowerment. We will use a portion of our resources to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and house the homeless, as God gives us the ability [Luke 4:18-19]. We also consider education crucial and essential in the life of the Christian.
