All ministries within Lewis Chapel Baptist Church exist to fulfill the Great Commission given by Jesus to the disciples in Matthew 28: 16-20: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” We strive to fulfill the great commission through serving in these various ministries. Where is God calling you to serve?
