When we believe in the gospel of the kingdom of God and when we that when turn to follow Jesus, God changes us.

Jesus teaches that the two greatest commandments are to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind” and to “love your neighbour as you love yourself” (Matt 22:36-41). As a church, we’re learning how to love God and each other, we’re learning and growing together, and we’re getting ready for His kingdom that will come!
