He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?Micah 6:8                 
Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains.  Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.  Ephesians 6:19-20

Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be, not man’s account of his efforts to find God, but rather an account of God’s effort to reveal himself for man. We believe that the Holy Bible was written by man; divinely inspired by God, influenced by the Holy Spirit, and that scriptures both old and new testaments contain all things necessary to salvation.
