Tatalo mo le Misiona
a le Ekalesia

   Le Atua o le alofa tunoa ma le alofa mutimutivale uma lava.  O lau afio na e fa'avaeina lau Ekalesia ma e tu'uina i ai lau galuega e tala'i lau tala lelei mo le manuia o le lalolagi.
   Fa'afetai i lou fa'aaogaina o i matou e fai ma au auauna e atina'e lou tino i le lalolagi.  Ia avea lau tala lelei folafola atu e lau Ekalesia e fai ma fa'aolataga i loto ua vaivai ma fusia ai loto ua fa'amanu'alia.  Ia avea lau tala lelei ma malamalama i le pogisa ma fa'amaluluina ai loto ma'a'a tu.  Ia fai lau tala lelei ma vai malu i e ua galala i le Upu moni, ma ia fai ma vaitafe e tafe atu ai lau amiotonu i le mea o i ai le oi ma le sauaina o lau fanau. 
    Ua matou tatalo mo le lalolagi ua fevaevaea'i ona o talitonuga i lau Afio, ia o'o atu i ai lou Malo ma faia lou Finagalo.  Ia fa'amanuia le misi-ona a lau Ekalesia ma ia fua tele mai lana galuega talai.  Ia tupu pea lou Malo, ma tu lau pule e fa'ava-vau, fa'avavau lava. Le Atua e, ua matou tatalo mo lau aufaigaluega galulue, ia e fa'aloto tele ma fa'a-malosia lo latou ola auauna ina ne'i manumalo le fa'avaivai ma le musua.  Ia latou iloa lou fa'aali mai e faia ai fa'aiuga lelei, ma ia tumau le galulue ma le loto gatasitasi.  E ala ia Iesu le ta'ita'i o le misiona, Amene.

Our Mission:
The "Great Commission," as decreed by our risen Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew chapter 28, lies at the core of our mission.  But as outlined in our Constitution (6th rev, 2010), the mission of the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa also involves, but is not limited to, the following:

  • To further the cause of Jesus Christ in the world by revealing to humanity that the glorious redemptive power of God that is manifested in the Resurrected Christ must be shown in their words and lives;
  • To faithfully represent God in our testimony and service towards humanity and all of creation;
  • To worship God in truth and Spirit and to lead others to do the same;
  • To  work whole-heartedly for the welfare of others, and to encourage them to live Christ-like lives so they too may be redeemed and enjoy the blessings of salvation received through Jesus Christ;
  • To inspire in all persons a love for Christ, a passion for righteousness, and a consciousness of their duties to God and their fellow human beings;
  • To collaboratively join with fellow Christians in charitable work and render assistance to the downcast, the poor, the weak,
    sick and neglected;
  • To bear witness to the love of God, so that all of humanity and creation may share in the benefits and blessings that God's love provides in abundance.

These are just some of the statements that describe our mission as the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa.  Since our inception in 1980, the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa has been carrying out this mission through faithfully serving the Samoan Christian Community in American  Samoa, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia.  With more than 100 Samoan member congregations joined together in faith and service to God, the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa strives to "make disciples of all nations, and baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..."'
