---About Us

 
Our desire is to be found faithful to “The Great Commission” Jesus left the church: “Therefore, as you go, disciple all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you each and every day until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 ISV)
 
Truly we cannot have a real vision for the future without a sense of ‘His/Story’ which has brought us this far. We are all indebted to those who have planted, prayed, preached, and paid for the blessings we now enjoy. The values of the past are crucial for designing a new future. God always commanded the nation of Israel to look back and ‘remember’ (used 162 times in the Scriptures) who they were and why they existed. This gave them their identity, values, purpose, mission, and ultimately . . . God’s vision for their future.
