The General Missions Ministry’s focus and aims are founded on the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) to “go ye therefore, and teach all nations” and the ideals embodied in The Christian’s Pledge, such as practicing the teachings of Jesus in dealing with others; dedicating our talents, time, and resources to spreading the Word of God; winning others to Christ through witnessing, personal services and ministry; encouraging and guiding young people in Christian work and service. Additionally, the Missionary Circles include the Eula Mae Crippen, Ada Hamlett, and Lenora Higgins.
