Mission & Ministry

We believe in the Great Commission given to us by Jesus.  Acts 1:8 Jesus called his disciples to "be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth."


We currently partner with the following ministries in prayer and financial support. 

Global Ministries

The Orphan Care program is a partnership venture with ACOP where many people have committed to caring for at least one orphan financially each month.  Over 600 orphans are receiving monthly support through this initiative.  Orphan Care extends to Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique.
