"And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem ..."
Jesus said, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). As a church, we know that our primary mission field is to serve as missionaries here in our Jerusalem: Livingston County, Illinois. You can join teams that are working 365 days a year to display the good news of Christ in marginalized communities in Livingston County by serving in under-resourced areas, becoming an adoptive or foster home, or volunteering for our different outreach events.
Learn about and connect with our local outreach teams below.
Here in our "Jerusalem," we strongly believe in the ministry of presence: being present in our county, blessing those in our community, and creating opportunities to both show the kindness and grace of Jesus as well as opening doors to speak about the gospel.
We are regularly at community events, farmers markets, and out in downtown Pontiac or surrounding towns giving away snow cones or hot chocolate for free in order to bless our community and open missional opportunities. In these environments, we can connect with our neighbors, invite people to church, offer to pray with them, and perhaps get to tell them our story of encountering Jesus. Anyone, adults or children, have a place in this ministry. If you'd like to be involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
