Our Mission: (EFKAS)

The "Great Commission," as decreed by our risen Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew chapter 28, lies at the core of our mission.  But as outlined in our Constitution (6th rev, 2010), the mission of the Congregational Christian Church in American Samoa also involves, but is not limited to, the following:

  • To further the cause of Jesus Christ in the world by revealing to humanity that the glorious redemptive power of God that is manifested in the Resurrected Christ must be shown in their words and lives;

  • To faithfully represent God in our testimony and service towards humanity and all of creation;

  • To worship God in truth and Spirit and to lead others to do the same;

  • To  work whole-heartedly for the welfare of others, and to encourage them to live Christ-like lives so they too may be redeemed and enjoy the blessings of salvation received through Jesus Christ;

  • To inspire in all persons a love for Christ, a passion for righteousness, and a consciousness of their duties to God and their fellow human beings;

  • To collaboratively join with fellow Christians in charitable work and render assistance to the downcast, the poor, the weak, the sick and neglected;

  • To bear witness to the love of God, so that all of humanity and creation may share in the benefits and blessings that God's love provides in abundance.

These are just some of the statements that describe our mission as the Congregational Christian Church in American Samoa.  Since our inception in 1980, the Congregational Christian Church in American Samoa has been carrying out this mission through faithfully serving the Samoan Christian Community in American  Samoa, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia.  With more than 100 individual Samoan congregations joined together in faith and service to God, the Congregational Christian Church in American Samoa strives to "make disciples of all nations, and baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..."'
