WHAT WE DO
As a church, we exist to make others look good, we are here to make churches, schools and health facilities flourish, we do it by involving our community and our members, training and equipping them. We do this because we have a Wonderful Savior and a message second to none and we are pleased to be involved in the mission that God has given us. We know we are doing well, when our schools are doing well, when our health facilities are thriving and our communities heeding to the advent message.
