"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1:8 (CSB)
We believe that being a disciple of Jesus Christ involves four characteristics (worship, discipleship, service, and evangelism). As a local church and as the Christians who comprise it, we respond to God's amazing grace by helping each other grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who embrace and live out these characteristics more and more as we spend our lives for the glory of our Lord.
One characteristics is that all Christ followers "Share Christ with the World". By share we mean giving away something we know we can never lose: the joy of knowing Christ through faith. Sharing Christ begins here, in St. Mary's County, with our neighbors, coworkers, family, and friends. We also seek to share Christ throughout our region, this great nation, and in several parts of the globe. We do this through strategic missions partnerships with church planters and local congregations who are also working to share Christ with their part of the world.
Let's go make disciples together!
