My personal story
Life, Faith, Confidence
I answered the call to Pastor a congregation because I love God. In loving God, I have had so many demonstrations of His goodness, grace, mercy and healing in my life, there was no other option but to say "yes" to this next level of service. Yes, I did say "service" because that is the purest definition of ministry.
Those of us who carry these titles in the Kingdom of God, have a very simple, yet profound job description, which is found in Ephesian 4:11-13 and is not lost on me. It reads:
"So Christ, himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be build up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
As a result of this understanding, we are committed to being a teaching ministry so that our members and visitors will be encouraged, equipped and supported in becoming and sustaining victorious lives.
Finally, and most importantly, Jesus gave two new commandments, upon which we rest our calling. Those two commandments are to love God with our all and to love people as we love ourselves. Thus, LOVE GOD; LOVE PEOPLE is who and what we strive to be in and to the world. Indeed, it always has been and always will be the only thing that matters. If we master these two, everything else falls into its rightful place.
We look forward to welcoming you to this unique ministry!
