Theme Verse

“I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.” Ezekiel 22:30


The mission of BTGUM is to engage the culture in such a way, that anyone who comes in contact with it or its members will be loved, served, and saved. This will be accomplished by:

  1. Teaching and applying practical Biblical training and discipleship to its members.
  2. Being intentional about serving the world around us through community projects, events, and performances.
  3. Making the wonder and saving grace of the Gospel plain to those we come in contact with when given the opportunity.
