The primary purpose of the Missions Ministry is to give opportunity for salvation of souls in the U. S. and foreign fields where simple New Testament Christianity is little known or unknown. Secondary purposes include assisting and encouraging brethren in mission fields, stimulating greater interest and better involvement in mission fields by our members, and arousing a greater consciousness of the value of souls, not only in mission areas, but in our own community.
