Vision Statement

Scriptural Foundation

Romans 10:17 “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ.”  Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”  Exodus 4:12 “Now then go, and I even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.”  Exodus 18:20  “…teach them the statues and the laws, and make known to them the way in which they are to walk and the work they are to do.”  Deuteronomy 6:7 “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” Isaiah 28:10 “For He says, Order on order, order on order, line on line, line on line, and little here, a little there.  Indeed, He will speak to this people . . .”
