Fruitland Community Church is a Kingdom-minded church on mission and we structure our partnerships around the Great Commission found in the book of Acts.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8 (NIV)
We intentionally strive for mission partners in our Jerusalem, our Judea, our Samaria, and our world. Here is a brief description of our mission partners and links to learn about each of the ministries. If you are interested in supporting any of these ministries financially or by volunteering, send us an e-mail and we will give you more information.
