“Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel…” Matthew 28:19.
Missions is at the heart of God and therefore we endeavor to keep it central to our heart as a church. We understand that the local church is not to simply become a “private club” for its members but among its many purposes, the local church should also become a launching pad for equipped believers to become happy vessels through which a lost and dying world can hear of the Gospel of salvation. Since our church’s inception, believers from AGAPE have travelled thousands of miles in dozens of trips in order to fulfill our part in covering the earth with the Good News message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Individuals and teams continue to go forth from our church to such places as: Hong Kong – China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Morocco, Romania, Albania, Montenegro, Mozambique, and the list just keeps on growing…
At the heart of our church’s mission involvement and support are two ministries close to our heart:
- Rhema Christian Center in the Philippines – www.rhemaphilippines.org
This ministry was founded in 1983 by our pastor and her parents. The main part of Rhema Christian Center’s ministry in the Philippines is the Bible and Ministerial Training School: Rhema Christian Training Center. Other ministries covered by Rhema are: licensing and ordination of ministers, legal covering for churches, Christian based preschools and more. Please check out Rhema’s website for more information.
- Mozambique Mission
Shawn and Bojana Atwood are newlyweds and young new missionaries to Mozambique. Bojana was born in Serbia but grew up in Switzerland and in AGAPE as her home church. She graduated from Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas where she met her husband. The two shared a passion for Mozambique and are currently connected to a mission ministry working in Mozambique through Shawn’s home church in California, USA. They are evangelizing in schools and tribal areas, aiding in the production and distribution of Audio Bibles, leading mission teams visiting from the U.S. and more.
