A LEGACY DRIVEN CHURCH
8/20/17 AM Service
Our mission is to lead a legacy driven church of Spirit Filled and Spirit Led believers to strengthen the faith of the weak, to offer hope to the broken, and to extend the love of Jesus Christ beyond our walls to reach the surrounding communities and the world.
To leave a legacy for the church, we must:

We need to do what we do with the right motives and not to be seen of men
Proverbs 11:2 (AMPC)
2 When swelling and pride come, then emptiness and shame come also, but with the humble (those who are lowly, who have been pruned or chiseled by trial, and renounce self) are skillful and godly Wisdom and soundness.
When you do things only to get noticed by man you already have your reward
