"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Acts 1:8

These were Jesus' famous last words and His first priority.  God charges each local church to be on mission to the world.  This is the major reason the church exists.  Pole Creek exists for this very reason.......to tell the world about Jesus!

Most missionaries would testify that their calling to missions first came in a local church, where someone informed them about God's mission and educated them about becoming involved. Be a part of the mission program at Pole Creek!

No matter how many important activities take place within the church walls, a church's primary, most urgent mission is beyond those walls--at the ends of the earth, in Samaria, in Judea, and in Jerusalem, among the lost peoples whom Jesus sees so clearly and loves so much!
