Years ago when this church was started, it was decided that the theme verse for this new ministry would be Hebrews 12:1,2. Those verses read as follows: “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of faith, who for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Over the years, these truths have sustained and encouraged the saints who have fellowshipped here. In these verses, we are reminded that the Christian life is a marathon and not a wind sprint. It is God’s desire that we do not be “shooting stars,” so to speak, appearing with great brilliance only to fade away in times of difficulty and testing. Rather, we are to be faithfully walking in submission to Him until the day He calls us into glory. These verses also remind us that to successfully complete the race that God has set before us, we must be growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. What a blessing it is to be part of a church where Jesus Christ is exalted through the proclamation of the truth and where saints are equipped and encouraged to remain faithful to Him. May God continue to bless this ministry and may those who fellowship here remain faithful, encouraged, and joyful.
