What do we mean by “NEAR FRONTIERS”?
Typically we think of a “frontier” as a far away place that is difficult to get to. But sometimes the frontier is right under our noses. That is what has happened with ethnic peoples who formerly were far away. This generation is seeing perhaps the most amazing movement of peoples ever. Many who once were out in the distant frontier are now near! Our opportunity, and responsibility, as believers in America, is to partner together to love those who have moved into our neighborhoods.
Here are some of our convictions :
WE BELIEVE that immigrant churches are a divine provision for reaching America with the love of Jesus Christ. SO LET’S PARTNER IN SHARING THE GOSPEL.
WE BELIEVE that the power of Christ is displayed when diverse cultures dwell together in unity. SO LET’S LEARN TO EMBRACE ONE ANOTHER IN RECONCILING LOVE.
WE BELIEVE that God is sending internationals to America that they might find salvation in Jesus Christ. SO LET’S WELCOME THEM IN JESUS’ NAME.
WE BELIEVE that segments of society have long been shunned and under-resourced. SO LET’S SERVE TOGETHER IN WAYS THAT EMPOWER.
