Our Mission Statement:

To increase the traffic to heaven by creating life-changing communities
 ---------------
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lords favor has come, and with it, the day of Gods anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory. They will rebuild the ancient ruins, repairing cities destroyed long ago. – ISAIAH 61:1-4
--------------
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations ..." – MATTHEW 28:19
--------------
In His commission, Jesus says:
1. Baptism is a priority.
"Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..." – MATTHEW 28:19
--------------
A. Were united in the meaning of Baptism.
B. Were united in the method of Baptism.
And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him.. – MATTHEW 3:16
C.  Baptism by immersion after salvation is required for ownership at LifeQuest Church.
--------------
2. His Word is essential.
"And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you..."
– MATTHEW 28:20
