Pastor Mink is currently covering the Seven Kingdom Principles of Church Growth. Following the introduction on September 21, he will spend the following six weeks speaking on the basic functions of the local church:
The church must experience God and seek His kingdom; listening to Him through His Word is vital to making decisions that reflect the relationship we must have with Him. Church growth (personally and numerically) is God's supernatural work in a local church. If we are not growing personally and numerically, we simply are not in touch with Him. Please join us in strengthening our walk with our Lord Jesus and with each other.
