As a church, we encourage participation. We believe that once you have accepted Christ as your lord and saviour, it now becomes paramount that you too extend the love and mercy Jesus has shown you. The best way to do this is by serving in the house of God. Serving makes our lives matter and it allows us to also release the fragrance God blessed us with. Serving allows us to discover and develop our gifts. Jesus served, we too ought to serve.
1 Peter 4:10-11 (NKJV)
10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
