Our Christian Mission: “Reaching people with the gospel.”
Paul expressed his feelings towards those whom he had touched in his ministry with these words: “I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:3-6). We feel the same way about you. You have been and always will be partners with us in the gospel.
God has blessed our congregations with people like you in so many ways. We hope that you will have an opportunity to join us in giving thanks to God. If you cannot be here in person, keep us in our prayers, and feel free to write to us so that we can share your thoughts with our congregation.
