Our Mission & Vision
Raising The Cross Where The Poor & Needy Are Found
Our primary mission as a Church is to bring individuals into a saving relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our mission also includes developing programs that address the enduring plight of young Blacks in America.
Nearly one million Black men are behind bars. Homicide is the number one cause of death for young Black males. 50% of all Black men in their 20’s are unemployed. Nearly 70% of Black children are born to unwed mothers. In America’s inner cities, more than 50% of Blacks will not finish high school.
We have worked for many years to impact the lives of these vulnerable young adults. Our Rising Hope Project is a central component of the vision of our church.
