What We Believe

We believe in the Ephesians 4:11 Model, that, “And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ.” Our philosophy of ministry in the church is one of enabling others to be effective ministers.
