Once we become Christians, we don't fully stop being self-worshippers. But it means that we stop loving our self-worship. We begin to be able to fight it because there is a newness of life at work in us, growing everyday, slowly setting us free to truly be able to love others. As a result of this, we strive to display love to others with the same grace that we have been shown. We make a high priority of showing merciful acts to the poor, loving our neighbors near and far with gospel truth, and offering our service to God's Kingdom. Learn more about supported missions and opportunities.
The pastoral or shepherding care of the congregation is carried out through its pastors, its elders, and through one of our trusted counseling ministries. We also can make recommendations for skilled counselors. Learn more about counseling and support.
