My Faith:       I am nothing but by the grace and mercy of God, but by the grace and mercy of God, I am a child of God.  I have this ministry of preaching and pastoring by the mercy of God.  As God calls us to trust Him and as God calls us to serve Him, He is calling us to trust totally and completely what He did for us through His Son on the Cross and in the Resurrection.  It is an awesome privilege to serve God’s Church and God’s people.  It has been and is my great privilege to serve churches and people who are understanding, patient, forgiving, and progressive.  It is also the most wonderful thing in the world to invite people to receive the love of Jesus and to become part of His family called the body of Christ.

Life Passaage:   Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
