We are a diverse, Christ-centered people united in compassion, worship, and service.

Sisters and Brothers,

In the first century, Paul of Tarsus, wrote a letter of encouragement and challenge to the fledgling Christians in Rome. Among his encouragements and challenges appear these words: 

Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good;

love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.  Romans 12:9-13
