Since its inception, the Rehoboth Ethiopian Evangelical Church (REEC) has adopted the following objectives as its main goals:
I. PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL One of the most important objectives we have at REEC is proclaiming the saving power of Jesus Christ in words and deeds. As Jesus commands us, “...Go into the world and preach the gospel to all creation...” (Mk.16:15), we are dedicated and united as a community of faith to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. We will use various methods and strategies to reach the city of Atlanta, particularly, the Ethiopian Community with the message of the gospel.
II. DEVELOPING DISCIPLES
As the Lord Jesus commanded us, “...Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...” (Matt.28:20), The REECis committed to developing mature and visionary disciples and godly Christian leaders through Biblical and Practical Trainings and Sound Teachings. In order to accomplish this, the church conducts various Bible studies, Home Bible fellowships, Trainings, Seminars and Sunday School Classes for its members and ministry group leaders.
III. SERVING THE COMMUNITY
The REEC is not only committed to the fulfillment of the Great commission, but as a church, we are also committed to obey the Great Commandment, which says, “...Love your neighbor as yourself...” (Lk.10:27). We strive to serve the community in various ways. In the past, we assisted our community through counseling, visitation, charity works, and financial assistance.
IV. ESTABLISHING A CENTER The REEC desires to have its own worship center in order to reach our community in a very effective way. Even though in the past we have been using various facilities, one of our goals is to have our own center, which will be used for worship and various ministry activities. Currently, as a church, we are praying and working to accomplish this noble objective in the near future.
As God enables us, we, at the Rehoboth Ethiopian Evangelical Church are committed to accomplish these goals for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
