Matthew 28:18-20 "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

Bible Study Classes - Men, Ladies, Married Couples, Teens, Primaries, Juniors
We know that “…we are ambassadors for Christ,” II Corinthians 5:20 and we desire to share Christ with all those around us. We do this personally, in our day to day lives, speaking openly of our faith to our friends, family members, and neighbors. We also understand the importance of being involved in the weekly organized soul-winning time that our church has scheduled. We meet weekly on Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM for the express purpose of winning souls to Christ. We also offer periodic training classes dealing specifically with the area of personal evangelism, where we teach people how to reach people for Christ.
Colossians 2:6-7 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” We understand that once someone has received Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, it is vital that we personally invest in their spiritual growth. Many of our men and ladies, within the ministry, have been trained and have a great desire to be involved in this vital area.
In-Depth Discipleship/Counseling is available for those seeking Biblical guidance in in a variety of areas including: marriage, family, relationships, life-dominating sins, fear, worry, depression, and proper use of your spiritual gift(s).
We financially support our missionaries monthly and pray for them daily. We have an Annual Mission Conference each spring, with a designated theme, spotlighting all of our missionaries. It is during this conference that new missionaries present their ministries and, veteran missionaries report on the progress of their existing ministries. This is also when we make our annual Faith Promise Missions Giving Commitments.
Each Sunday morning we provide FREE TRANSPORTATION for adults and children from the surrounding area. Many of our members assist in this ministry, bringing others to church for the Sunday and Wednesday evening services.
Our food pantry is available to meet genuine needs and provide opportunities to share Jesus Christ with those who may not know Him personally. If you or someone you know is in need of groceries, please contact our church office. Donations of food items can be delivered to 119 Station Lane Grasonville MD, Monday – Friday. To schedule a drop off time please call Anna Newton, (551) 228-5905.
