Mission Statement
Our vision is to Make People “Blessed” with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.* This mission is inspired by God’s call to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3) as a source of blessings. This mission statement is deeply related to the kingdom vision of Jesus proclaimed in his inaugural speech, known as “Beatitude,” preamble of Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-12).
