Every believer is a missionary. The Great Commission is a mandate for all who claim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior: “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15. If we are to be effective believers and a church committed to transforming our times, then we, as the hands and feet of Jesus, must PRAY, SEND, and GO.
There are many areas in which to serve.
For more information, or if you are interested in serving through the missions ministry at HCBC, contact Linda Lewis email@example.com or any of the contact persons for specific ministry partners listed below.
