We desire to be a church of obedient disciples of Jesus Christ who obey The Great Commandment in
Mat 22:37 -40 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
