To Make Him known among the nations
(Acts 1:8) “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
One of the Core Values of Fort Myers Evangelical Free Church is:
We believe it is God’s desire for each member to understand and work to fulfill “The Great Commission”, which is “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matt. 28:18-20)
