MEET OUR TEAM

"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit."


Ephesians 2:19-22

We used to be
Completely Broken

We used to be broken. But now are grateful for undeserved redemption, astonished by amazing Grace, healed by forgiveness, humbled by the divine invitation to be included in the greatest cause on earth. The realization of this truth is what inspires us to worship the Lord for he is worthy of all our praise
