Vision & Purpose

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:”
—JESUS
EVANGELIZE THE LOST

We do this locally every Saturday as a church family.We do this globally by currently supporting 6 different missionaries and evangelistic projects by the faith promise commitments of our people.

BELIEVER'S BAPTISM

The first step of obedience for a new believer is baptism. We encourage the new believers to take this step as they begin a new life in Christ.

DISCIPLESHIP & GROWTH

We have developed many ways to disciple the new believers:

  • A first steps booklet for the recently converted

  • A 26 week discipleship course for the church member

  • A 32 week basic theology class for those that desire to advance further

  • A three year Bible Institute for those that want to best prepare themselves to serve God in the local church

Why Honduras?

Honduras is a historically Catholic nation in its religious affiliation, however evangelical Christianity, mostly of a charismatic/pentecostal variety, has made strong advances in recent years. Along with the presence of Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, the spiritual climate of Honduras could be best described as "religious confusion." Because of the deeply religious and economic poverty in the region, Honduras is ripe for a spiritual harvest. Our church-planting team sees El Progreso as a strategic location for gospel advance, both in planting new churches locally and as a springboard for sending missionaries around the world.
