Missions

We take the Great Commandment ~ Matthew 22:37-39 "Love God totally and love all people", and the Great Commission ~ Matthew 28:18-20 "Make disciples locally and globally" as the DNA of our church. It is what we are all about.


To fulfill our vision we look for strategic partnerships. We support missionaries from America in other cultures as well as national church planting teams. We are also involved in building churches, orphanages and Bible training centers. We encourage people in our church to become involved in child sponsorships for disadvantaged children. Most of our overseas missions work is in third world countries. We work with several international mission organizations and are a covenant partner with the Missions and Humanitarian organization WorldHelp.


We are also involved in sending our own people overseas on "Vision" trips as well as sending ministry and build teams.

CITY MISSION

Schenectady, New York

Founded in 1906, and dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. “Our ministries are seeking to comprehensively meet the needs of the poor in a manner that dignifies and strengthens the individual, the family, and the community.

Our goal is to provide not only HELP for today, but HOPE for tomorrow. We want to help people who are in need right now by meeting basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing. Providing these life essentials are at the core of who we are.

In addition, our hope is that we can do more than just meet basic needs ... we want to transform lives. Together we can help people begin to dream again and think about what they want their future story to look like. We help those future stories come true by providing spiritual guidance, counseling, training, classes, life and job skills training and so much more.”
