VISION & MISSION
An authentic life of love that is emptied of self and surrendered to Christ (Luke 9:23–24; Rom 6; Gal 2:20) and filled by and in fellowship with the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:52; Eph 5:18–21) for the empowerment of my God-given call to be a faithful disciple of Jesus (1 Cor 1:9), a loving husband of my wife (1 Cor 13:1–14:1; Eph 5:25–31), a devoted theologian of the Scriptures (Acts 17:11; 2 Tim 2:15), a selfless servant-leader of the church (Mark 10:42–45; Luke 22:25–27; Phil 2:1–11), and a passionate pastor-teacher of the everlasting gospel (Jer 20:9; Matt 28:19–20; Rom 10:9–17; 1 Cor 15:1–8; Eph 4:11; Rev 14:6–12).
Called to prepare wholistic, Spirit-filled disciples and healthy families for the imminent return of Jesus Christ through the preaching-teaching ministry of the word of God.
“... his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”

II Tim 4:1–2 ESV
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
