Being Gospel Responsible

Jesus is central to everything we do. We are here because of Him. Our lives are centered on Him. Our purpose on this earth is to make much of Jesus Christ.

"For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."

Colossians 1:16-17
