Helping make disciples through strategic partnerships around the world

Why do missions matter?

Jesus calls us to go and make disciples of all nations. But in the busyness of daily life, it can be hard to keep the gospel at the center of it all – or even know where to begin.

At Soteria, it’s our mission to make more and better disciples, and that’s why we’ve partnered with missionaries and organizations who are spreading the gospel around the world.

Whether you want to pray for missionaries, support their work, or go yourself, we can help you get connected to local and global mission opportunities.

GLOBAL MISSIONS

At Soteria, we define a missionary as someone who goes outside our local congregation and seeks to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, make disciples, and gather those disciples into local congregations.
