Mission Statement
"Why should I witness?" Several reasons should come to mind. First, because Jesus commands you to and if you are a Christian, He gives you the desire to witness. Lost people do not have a desire to witness: (Acts 1:1-11)
The mission of BCU & USCU is to equip Christians to be witnesses for our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 4:1. In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2. Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction. 3. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
