Maple Ridge Community Church

To be a community of believers mobilized to advance Christ's kingdom cross-culturally, by proclaiming the Truth, demonstrating Jesus' love and power, interceding for His purposes, evangelizing the unsaved, building disciples, and planting and establishing self-supporting indigenous churches.

Missions is the cross-cultural ministry of the church for the advancement of Christ's Kingdom. Cross-cultural ministry includes evangelizing, discipling, planting churches, and aiding in growth and development both overseas and in U.S. subcultures which are distinct from our own. Additionally it includes the equipping, sending, and supporting of workers engaged in this ministry.

  • Mobilize church community to be engaged in advancing
    Christ's kingdom
  • Raise up disciples with a World Christian perspective
  • Send out laborers into the spiritual harvest field
  • Present the truth and love of Christ to lost cultures
  • Establish Christ's Church throughout the world
  • Speed the day of Christ's return

As part of the Christian & Missionary Alliance we have a distinct call and anointing to be engaged in the work of world evangelization. The founder of the Alliance, A. B. Simpson, expressed well the passion and commitment we are to have as believers for Jesus Christ and the expansion of His Church world-wide in an article titled, ‘The Kind of Missionaries We Want’. We desire that these same characteristics would be true of our churches and missionaries today.
