9“Reaching as many people as possible for Jesus Christ ~ Loving God, Loving People”
 
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30). This means to honor God in every area of our life.
 
In Mark 12:31 Jesus said, “… Love your neighbor as yourself”. We best express love for people as we serve them through ministry and share with them the Good News about Jesus. We express love with our actions and with our words. Loving people is reaching out to our community and beyond.
