Ministries

In line with our primary mission in Matthew 28:19 which is to "...Make disciples of all nations", we incorporate our ministry structures on Ephesians 4:12 states, "Why is it that He gives us these special abilities to do certain things best? It is that God's people will be equipped to do better work for Him, building up the Church, the body of Christ, to a position of strength and maturity". We are called by God to serve him not simply because it's our duty, but by our joyful desire. Psalm 68:3 says, "But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful".

Feel free to browse our Ministries which are filled with many opportunities to help serve and build up the body of Christ.

Our Scripture

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interest, but also to the interest of others. Philippians 2:1-4 (ESV)

Our Scripture

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow upon them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. Isaiah. 61:1-3 (NIV)
