REACHING OUT TO THE WORLD
Luke records for us Jesus’ last words to His disciples when he writes, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8 NKJV). This verse in essence drives our approach to missions. Following this model for missions, we seek to reach our city, our nation, and our world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
OUR INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS/OUTREACH FOCUS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING MINISTRIES:
La Limye (The Light) is a Christ-centered children’s home for orphaned girls of any age. The goal is to take them out of the cycle of poverty, feed and nurture them, teach them a trade that they can use to support themselves as adults, and show them the love of Christ. Missionary,
Ellen Humerickhouse, wants to make a difference in these girls’ lives so they can grow up happy, healthy and strong in their Christian faith. Along with the children’s home, La Limye is used as a community center for the local adults. The goals are to offer basic literacy and life skills classes, give them access to clean water, and more importantly we will be teaching them about the love of Christ.
The Tokyo Sexwale Township and the Ithemba Family Church
Located in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa is the Ithemba Family Church. CBC has partnered with this group in various ways, including mission trips, to reach out to the Tokyo Sexwale township with the love and goodness of Jesus Christ.
As an organization following Jesus Christ, the Mission of Hope exists to bring life transformation to every man, woman, and child in Haiti. Their desire is to serve the nation of Haiti and see lives changed. Their passion is to see the hopeless find hope through Jesus Christ, and empower future generations through education to bring their country out of poverty.
