MINISTRIES AND LEADERSHIP

OUR MISSION

 

The mission of the Washington Temple COGIC is to carry out the “Great Commission” which is found in the scripture, Matthew 28:19-20 "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 always, even unto the end of the world. Amen" It is likewise our endeavor through the Love of God to meet the social, educational, recreational and spiritual needs of our congregants. Additionally we embrace the community by visiting the sick, those in prison, as well as, offering services specifically designed for the enhancement of the community.

 

This is accomplished by witnessing to men, women and children face to face, providing access to sermons on line, and having worship services that are Spirit led for the edification of all who seek the Lord.
