CALL 911 OR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IF YOU ARE A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ARE UNSAFE!
Statement of Faith
God has given us a heart and a call to serve his beloved, his hurting, and his needy right here in our own community. They are friends and neighbors in need. We have read, experienced, and believe God’s word that tells us to “pour ourselves out on the behalf of others and he shall supply our needs.” God’s economy is not like ours. The more we give, the more we get when God is in charge. We hold firm to this truth and God continues to do “exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that we ask or think.”
