The Freedom Fund is our strategic plan to aggressively eliminate our current debt in order to be free to strategically give more, do more, and reach more for the sake of the Gospel.
About 10 years ago, our church took out a building loan to build a Great Commission Center to serve as a home base of operations where we could impact our community and the world for the glory of King Jesus. In this building, we’ve worshipped the LORD together, served our community, shared the Gospel with people from all over the world, seen hundreds of people come to faith in Christ and be baptized, made disciples, and sent out missionaries to the ends of the earth. Marriages have been saved, lives have been transformed, needs have been met, relationships have been built, disciples have been encouraged, and spiritual war has been fought in this home base of operations. The LORD has used his people who meet in this facility to exalt his name.
We have paid $2.64 million, and as 2018 starts, debt on the Great Commission Center still exists. The Freedom Fund calls us to give generously, free from the love of money, to quickly retire the debt on our facilities in the next 3 to 4 years so that we can continue to expand our Gospel ministry to the ends of the earth. More evangelism, more church planting, more missions, more outreach, and more community impact for the sake of Jesus are possible when we are free from our current debt.
