Our Core Ministry:

We Gather - We Grow - We Go

We call it "The Great Commission". These are some of the last words Jesus spoke to his disciples and in them, the risen king, our conquering savior over sin, gave a task to his people, the church: go and spread the news of who Jesus is and the good news of what he's done (the gospel) and make disciples for Jesus. This is Jesus' commission. This is therefore our mission, not only as a group of believers called Shepherd of Peace, but also as individual disciples who make up his church.
