It is my honor as the pastor of the Bible Baptist Church to direct God's people according to the Bible. I try to live and instill my life verse into our church family, which is threefold: to express the greatness of God, then to bring the proper offering of time and treasures to Him, and finally to worship Jesus in the beauty of holiness (see 1Chronicles 16:29).
