"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age" - Matthew 28:19-20
Before Jesus ascended to heaven, he gave his people a mission. God's desire is that all people would have an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We accomplish that mission at City of God by meeting needs and building relationships in our region, supporting church planting efforts through Acts 29, and sending missionaries to go and fulfill the Great Commission.
