Yet we have tragically taken this costly command of Christ to go, baptize, and teach all nations and mutated it into a comfortable call for Christians to come, be baptized, and listen in one location. Join us EVERY OTHER Sunday at 5pm as we learn how to become fishers of men. Our group will begin on Jan. 23rd.
