Associate Minister

Col 1:12-13

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:”

We are thankful to the God above who made it possible for us to receive salvation through his Son, Jesus Christ.  Before the foundation of the world, God had us in mind.  God made it possible through his Son that we who were in darkness might come into the marvelous Light of his dear Son.  Since we understand where we were, we are grateful to God who made it all possible.  Since we have been translated into the kingdom of his dear Son, our goal is to share to gospel to all mankind.  It is our prayer and hope that everyone would be delivered from the power of darkness through the word of God.  You are always welcome at all of our services, and we would love to meet with you personally.
