Why we do it

Jesus commanded us to make disciples.  A disciple is a child of God, empowered by the Spirit of God, obedient to the word of God, being conformed to the Character of the Son of God all for the glory of God.

Each of these ministries is designed to equip, teach and encourage you to love the LORD your God with all your heart soul mind and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself.
