Bill said: "To fulfill God's call for us as a Christian Church, we must be in Mission. Jesus said the the two Great Commandments are: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all of your soul, and with all of your strength; and love your neighbor as you love yourself. We must ground our faith in worhsip, prayer, Bible study, and reveal and practice our faith in mission throughout the world by giving the Good News of God's love to our Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Faith and works go together in God's plan for our lives here on earth - we must do both.
