A Message From Pastor Billy:
"Deborah and I are faithfully committed to God’s call on our lives. Sharing Christ with others and following through with discipleship is a priority. Seeing people grow in Christ through the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Word of God and become fruit-bearing Christians brings no greater joy. Jesus said, 'Follow Me and I will make you to become fishers of men.' Jesus Christ is still changing lives today, so, let’s go fishing!"
