MISSIONS AT NEPC

Just what IS “Missions”?
Mission work is any work by the church that reaches out to the community, city, nation, or world. The ultimate purpose of any mission is to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to all people.

Northeast Presbyterian Church (NEPC) supports EVANGELISTIC MISSIONS – preaching/teaching the gospel – as well as programs designed to minister to THE POOR, THE SICK, THE HUNGRY, and THE IMPRISONED – preaching the gospel with our actions..

Mission work is a high priority of NEPC, with a congregation that shows its interest and care through giving and participation in local as well as international projects.
