Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Missions

Our motto at QBC is ‘Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ’.  This not only includes Rhode Island but to the remotest part of the earth as commanded in Acts 1:8; “you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

John Piper said “Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t.” QBC is committed to reaching for Christ not just those here in our “Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria” but to the least-reached in the remotest parts of the world.
