OUR PURPOSEwhy are we here?
OUR VISIONwhere are we going?
“The challenge for today’s church is how to make whole disciples out of broken people.|
Some people’s brokenness is obvious. With others, beautiful exteriors have been carefully crafted to hide what no one really wants to see anyway. Sometimes only their eyes betray them. Or the unsteadiness in the voice, or the almost unnoticeable trembling of the hands.”
