  • To celebrate salvation through the sacraments of the Lord's supper and baptism

  • To instruct children in the Word of God

  • To present the Gospel to the lost through work on the mission fields, at home and abroad

  • To challenge God's people to subdue all areas of life and thought to the absolute dominion of God's laws

  • To provide charity and compassion to the poor and needy
