We serve God by serving others
The world defines greatness in terms of power, possessions, and position. In our self-serving “me first” culture, acting like a servant is not popular. Jesus, however, measured greatness in terms of service, not status—how many people you serve, not how many people serve you. Jesus taught that our lives have more meaning when we’re helping others. This truth is so important within the church, locally in our communities, throughout Arizona, and around the world.
As a church, we want to show God’s love to our local community in every way possible. We have partnerships with a wide variety of ministries and organizations throughout metro Phoenix and Casa Grande.
Starting this fall!
