The Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20 to go into all the world and make disciples. Ridgecrest mission activities facilitate the involvement of our members in ministering to and reaching people for Christ in St Charles (our Jerusalem), in Missouri and North America (our Judea/Samaria) and to the world (Ends of the Earth) Acts 1:8. Our mission effort exist to instill an understanding in the hearts of our people, that it is the responsibility of every Christian to be “on mission” and to personally engage in the work of missions.
The United States of America is a land of opportunity in many ways. We intentionally engage mission within our national boundaries, that our near-home neighbors may know Jesus, too. Most recently, we are engaged with the city and surrounding community of Dauphin Island, AL.
The gospel is the power of God unto salvation for every human who believes. We value the immeasurable worth of our global neighbors and seek to cooperate with God's great mission in other parts of the world. We have ongoing ministry in select areas of the Ukraine (Europe) and in the countries of West Africa. Click here for a history of past mission trips.
