Jesus commands us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all nations. That command can be overwhelming at times if you approach it in the wrong way. We at Unity believe that the church is not a building, but rather it’s the people who make up the church. And it is people that will accomplish the mission of God. Jesus told His disciples that He would make them “become” fishers of men. This shows us that the Lord was going to train them to seek the lost and lead them to the cross. Jesus also tells us to start where we are, and work our way throughout the globe.
At Unity, we want you to understand your mission in three stages:
Recognize who you are.
Realize your potential
Run with your mission
Recognize that we are all sinners in need of a Savior. If you have accepted Christ as your Savior, you are a child of the King. You have an inheritance in Heaven. Therefore we are to share it with everyone. Knowing what has been done for us causes us to share it.
Realize your potential. The Lord took a few fishermen, a tax collector, a doctor --12 regular men -- and turned the world upside down. The potential you have as a believer is so much more than you realize and the Lord can use you to accomplish great and mighty things.
Run with your mission. It's simple. Take what has been given to you and do not look back. We are to keep our focus on advancing His kingdom, knowing the Lord could return any day.
There are many ways that you can be a part of the outreach program at Unity:
Giving. As a church we believe that the Lord blesses us in order for us to bless others. Your sacrificial giving is an important part of our efforts as a church to reach the people with the gospel.

Everything we do in our lives as believers is considered “outreach.” By living our daily lives fully committed to Christ, we become witnesses we are supposed to be. Wherever life takes you as a believe, you are to be a light for Christ and share what has been given to you. Through becoming connected at Unity, you will have many opportunities to serve, learn, and share your faith.
