Our Ministries

Jesus Christ gave the Great Commission in Matthew 28: 19 and 20:  “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”  Macedonia heeds the Master’s call with the following ministries:
