Leadership

For God's glory and our own good.

We do not see church as a place we attend, rather we see it as our identity.  Under Christ authority we are building His church (Col. 1:18). We are a group of people, saved by the blood of Christ, seeking to live as a family united in One Faith, One Spirit, and One Lord (Eph. 4:5,6). Our identity exist so that we can move one another closer to Christ (1 Thess. 2:8), and to fulfill the great commission (Matt. 28). For God's glory and our own good.
