Leadership

Purpose

We will strive to bring honor and praise to God and to preserve the good name of the Church through a common life that is energized by Christ's love and the Holy Spirit's power. Together we will do all we can to pursue the knowledge of God, holiness, the spiritual growth of our families, and the salvation of those outside of Christ.
