Eternal Life

Areawide Crusade

The purpose of the crusade is to invite likeminded Independent Baptist churches to come together in a neutral location in their city or area. A neutral location communicates that it is a multiple church crusade and not just one church’s meeting. The unsaved are also more likely to attend a service in a neutral location.

Revival Crusade

The heartbeat of the crusade is to see God’s people revived to a place of fellowship with Him and fruitfulness in His service. We desire to help the churches involved to seek revival before and during the crusade. We believe the outflow of revival is evangelism.

Evangelistic Crusade

The focus of the crusade is to preach the Gospel. It is an opportunity to invite the unsaved to hear the clear, straightforward proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ that will set men free. The crusade also mobilizes churches to canvass their respective areas with the gospel through soul winning training and door-to-door outreach.
