We are so glad you are with us today. If you are a fellow believer, our earnest hope is that you will be spiritually enriched and edified by your experience here today. And if you are not yet a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ, our prayer is that today some influence here may draw you toward Christ.
Volunteers are at the Welcome Center to assist you with any needs or questions you may have.
Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor
No Middle Ground
Word From the Pastor
When it comes to Jesus, neutrality amounts to opposition, playing it safe amounts to playing Him false. No way to be a friend of Jesus unless one takes sides with Jesus.
