To develop people to spiritual maturity through bible studies, conferences, seminars, retreats, training, to what ever method needed to bring people closer to Christ.
To prepare leaders for the 21st century and help believers discover their purpose.
To build up people in the spiritual, emotional, and physical areas of their life through education and encouragement in the Word of God
To accept people no matter what walk of life they came from, and to lead them to the place where they can become all they can be in Christ
