Missions

At Northwest we believe we should not make a distinction between missions and evangelism and that our efforts should always be focused on sharing the wonderful story of Christ whether in foreign lands, a distant city, or in Durant.  We strongly support efforts to share the gospel throughout the world but also believe we should be working to demonstrate the love and power of Jesus here at home.
 
We believe our efforts in foreign fields are generally more effective when they are directed at training native evangelists in their homeland and providing long-term support for programs that demonstrate our care and compassion for both the body and soul like the Chimala Mission in East Africa that we have supported for many years.
