In the light of its beliefs about mission expressed in this Mission Strategy paper, the church commits to:
Evangelism and teaching ministry to the English-speaking people in Hong Kong;
Encouraging its members to be mindful of the unreached especially in the 10/40 window, partnering with the church and the missionaries already there and sending missionaries to the unreached.
Exhorting and encouraging its members to carry out all five marks of mission in every part of their lives, especially in the workplace; and
Partnering with other Christian organizations especially through prayer and giving 15% of its non-designated income to support its mission partners through ‘the World Mission Fund’ (formerly ‘tithed to missions’).

Discretionary Mission Fund
The Covid-19 situation has affected the whole world. Many are affected financially. The Early Church responded to the needs of the severe famine by organizing a collection to support the poor. They knew Jesus’ grace to them, and it would be a beautiful picture of what the church could be if those with plenty would supply the needs of those with little. “The goal is equality, as it is written “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little”.” (8:14-15)
