Local Outreach is our intentional and collaborative effort to glorify God, to share the gospel of Christ as we help meet the basic physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of those in the community, building relationships which strengthen the community and equipping people to lead more productive lives.
Thousands and thousands of people in our land never set foot in a church building, never attend a service of worship and never have an opportunity to hear the gospel. That’s one reason why we hold regular open-air meetings in our city centre.
Sound doctrine in the Christian faith is accurate Bible teaching. “Doctrine” can be defined as the central beliefs that are held by a group of people and “sound” implies that something is reliable. Therefore, when churches spend more time entertaining people and giving shallow sermons, they are not fulfilling what a church is supposed to do and be. We must be preaching and teaching the central beliefs of the Christian faith based on what the Bible teaches—regardless of how the world around us is changing.
Teaching sound doctrine
Our mission is to passionately proclaim the Gospel of Grace to the glory of God and the transformation of man. Grace desires to be a place where God is glorified, believers are edified, and the lost are evangelized. Jesus gave His disciples their marching orders. He commanded, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).
