Serving the World!

 

 

Loving One Another!

 

 

Enjoying God!

 

SPECIAL NOTE FROM PASTOR JIM SPERRY...

 

      We view our work as a path of ministry.  Our purpose on this path, and the process in which we all try to walk, includes three major steps.

 

     First,  we are fully convinced that the Lord desires all of us to delight in Him.  We have come to understand that "God is most

 glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him."  Throughout Scripture it is emphasized that God is to be enjoyed.   Psalm 34:8

 states  "Oh taste and see that the Lord is good!"  We are serious about enjoying God--He is our treasure and delight!

 

     Second, those who enjoy God should love one another.  Romans 12:5 tells us that Christians are "members one of another."

 Based on that fact, the New Testament is filled with commands of how God wants believers to treat one another (e.g., love one

 another -- Romans 12:10a, honor one another--Romans 12:10b, accept one another--Romans 15:7, instruct one another--

 Romans 15:14, greet one another-- Romans 16:16, etc.)  God's design is to use each of us to "build up one another."

 

     Third, enjoying God and loving one another includes a passion for wanting to see others come to God through Jesus Christ.

 We think of this as serving the world!  Jesus Christ commanded us to make disciples of all kinds of people (Matthew 28:19-20).

 

     We want to have the kind of ministry in which people enjoy God, love one another, and serve the world by reaching unbelievers

 for Jesus Christ.

 

     It would be a joy to include you in this kind of work!  Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have about our work.
