Mission

The Christian Worship Hour was ordained by God to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the world. The Christian Worship Hour proclaims the Word of God simply and humbly in all its truth and purity, with special concern and compassion for the lost and with hope and encouragement for all believers. The Christian Worship Hour seeks to win the lost to Christ, to minister to the lonely, the elderly, and the shut-ins, and to nurture the saved in their daily walk with the Lord. Our purpose will always be to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ so that all may come to everlasting life through faith in Him, bringing glory to God the Father Almighty. Amen.
