Our mission is to provide opportunities for the congregation to unite and support the ministry and one another with prayer. The Word of God states in James 5:16, "The earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available, dynamic in its working." By praying together, we can build a strong foundation of caring and committed Christians who are willing to advocate righteousness and help fulfill God's specific purpose of furthering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that when we respond to someone in need, we are responding to Him and that those who love Him would be easily identified by their simple acts of kindness. As His ambassadors, our aim is to be available, upon request, to bring the love of Christ to those who are confined to their homes or in a hospital bed because of physical injury, sickness, surgery, or terminal illness. During a time of illness, a prayer of faith, a touch of kindness, and a gentle, soft-spoken word of assurance can be enough to change the course of a day. The Word of God, when directed by the Spirit of God, is able to bring salvation to the lost as well as comfort, encouragement, and healing to the believer.
