"And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15 NKJV
Our purpose and mission of the Cary Church of God is very simple: GO! Go into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. We do this by Reaching in love, Restoring through the gospel and Redeeming through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We're a serving church, one that ministers to those in the church so that we can be equipped to spread His Word & Love to those outside of our church... to those in our community. We do this through a variety of ministries and programs, some of which are detailed below.

"Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
"I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, 'Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?' Then said I, 'Here am I; send me.'” Isaiah 6:8
Jesus Christ gave his life so that all people of the world could be saved from sin and death and receive eternal life with Him. He calls his followers to join him in reaching the lost with the Good News of His salvation plan.
We are a missions-minded church. As a result, many of our members participate in global missions trips each year. From Haiti, Guatemala, Cuba & Puerto Rico, to Canada, Ireland, Germany & Africa, we encourage missions opportunities to reach, redeem and restore lives through His Love and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Among the countries we have ministered, a particular assignment the Lord gave our church was to the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. For 22 years, the Lord provided opportunity upon opportunity for us to minister to this area through church & orphanage construction; free medical, dental & eye clinics; school, prison and street evangelistic outreach and community-wide evangelistic crusades.
We witnessed thousands of lives changed as the Holy Spirit moved through this ministry to Guayaquil, and rejoiced as other ministry partners joined with us in these endeavors. In fact, many of those ministry partners have now become leaders themselves in ministering to the wonderful people of Guayaquil.
After 22 years of ministering in Ecuador, the Lord is leading us in a new direction in outreach. Where will the Lord lead us next? Our first outreach was a local project in fall 2015 called "Mission: Triangle".
As we are located in the heart of RTP, NC., the harvest field is vast and opportunities for ministry are plentiful. And since we're located in a community with many different social and ethnic classes, as well as many different beliefs, the message is clear - the "nations" are well-represented in our own backyard! Mission:Triangle is our opportunity is to engage and share the good news to our friends and neighbors here in RTP through tangible, meaningful and life-changing outreach.
BREAD OF LIFE
The Bread of Life is an evangelistic outreach to Moore Square in downtown Raleigh, where spiritual and physical food is served. Teams rotate every other month on scheduled Saturdays to cook and serve food to up to 200 people.
Accompanying the meal and a time of fellowship, we present the gospel, along with an invitation for salvation and prayer.

CHRISTIAN LIBRARY INTERNATIONAL
The mission of Christian Library International (CLI) is to bring Christ to the imprisoned through Christian books, Bibles, CDs and DVDs. With these resources men and women discover the good news of Jesus Christ and learn how to follow him.
Those behind bars have time to read, reflect and rebuild their lives based on the solid foundation of Christ. Only Jesus can change a life and give it meaning.
Currently, there are 2.3 million prisoners, and CLI brings the important gospel message free of charge to men, women and youth in over 1,300 prisons, jails, youth detention centers and prison hospitals.
Donations of new & used books are encouraged and appreciated, and every book that leaves CLI carries a stamp encouraging the inmates to sign up for a 15 lesson correspondence Bible study offered through the program. Volunteers are also needed to review the correspondence submissions.

COMMUNITY OF HOPE
The Community of Hope Food Pantry is a ministry that serves the people of downtown Raleigh by providing both physical and spiritual food to those in need.
Volunteers do any combination of collecting food from the shopping carts placed throughout the church and/or shopping at the food bank for needed items. On the third Saturday of each month, volunteers help transporting the donations from our church to Revelation Freewill Baptist Church in downtown Raleigh, unload, sort and fill grocery bags with food and other household staples, while also ministering to those who come by praying with them for their needs or to receive salvation.

Each Sunday, we provide an opportunity for discipleship and fellowship to our friends in the Moore Square area of downtown Raleigh.
We provide transportation to and from our church to the men and women from the South Wilmington Street Center, Moore Square, and Hillsborough Street areas each Sunday. Once at church, we engage in Sunday school / discipleship lessons and then join in worship for our Sunday morning service.
Teachers, bus drivers, and those preparing and serving the meals rotate on a regular basis to volunteer their time, talents, and treasures to help minister to our Downtown Friends.

We believe that problems of crime in our communities will only be solved when God's people address these problems using Biblical solutions and standards. Project Nehemiah is a three-phase effort to Reach, Restore, and Reconcile the men at Wake Correctional Center, and to help them turn from crime to lives of accomplishment and contribution.
This ministry is at the Polk Youth Center located in Butler and commits to being a part of lives being changed through listening and caring. In small groups, inmates who are 18 to 25 years old are allowed to share about themselves and their families. There are many groups willing to provide worship services and Bible studies for prisoners, but the Yokefellow Prison Ministry uniquely gives prisoners the opportunity to share their lives within an ongoing redemptive fellowship.
A Newsletter sent to inmates who are being ministered to presently at Polk Youth Center and after they have been relocated to other prisons.
The Second Chance mission statement is: “To let all men know that we are free in Christ Jesus --- and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
Particular ways new people can serve in the ministry
- Project Nehemiah needs mentors that will work individually with a soon-to-be-released inmate. It is preferred that a team of mentors (from the men’s fellowship, small group, etc.) mentor an individual inmate.
- Yokefellows need additional volunteers that would dedicate Wednesday nights to be the facilitator of a small group of inmates ranging from one to half a dozen guys. One does not have to be a Biblical scholar, but just someone willing to show the love of Jesus to these young inmates.
- Pen Pals to correspond with inmates are needed. Many that are ministered to at Polk Youth Institution request a pen pal.
- It would be good if “Second Chance” could be published monthly. To do so will require those who are willing to contribute articles and be responsible for a specific month(s) edition.
