Soul Winning

All believers are given the mandate to make disciples. (Matthew 28: 18-20). It is not a request, but rather a command from Jesus Christ to make disciples while baptizing and teaching them along the way. Since the evangelistic ministry is a primary function of the church, our purpose is not only to share the Gospel, but also build disciples after pointing them towards Christ. If you would like further information about this ministry, please contact Deacon Gary & Jacqueline Williams.

Prison Ministry

The ABCOC Prison Ministry exists to reach and encourage those imprisoned within the Prince George’s County penal system. We believe that all humans are created in the image of God. Our purpose is to come alongside men and women through studying God’s word, providing outlets for improved choices, and ultimately encouraging a relationship with Jesus Christ. (Matthew 25) For further information about this ministry, please contact Rev. Furman Hill.

Central Union Mission

Serves the Central Union Mission located at 65 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001.
