In order to truly know God and his love for us, we must first understand that the only way to experience a relationship with God is through Jesus. (John 3:16)
Jesus made it clear that love is a top priority and above all else we are called first to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. We are also called to love others in a way that reflects God's love for us. We believe that without knowing the love of Jesus, it can be difficult to see value in yourself and others around you. Learning to love yourself and others is a direct result of a loving relationship with God. (Mark 12:29-31)
Families are close to God’s heart. In fact, they were His idea in the first place. From the beginning, when God created man, He said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” (Genesis 2:18)
From the beginning of time, God saw family as important, and so should we!
St. Thomas Assembly of God places a high priority on family and believes that if we are dedicated to loving and serving our own families as well as the church family, we will build lasting relationships together. Healthy families build a healthy church and we believe that you're a visitor once and then you're family.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
God was intentional when He created us. Finding your purpose is knowing God and experiencing the greatest expression of His love in your life. Discovering this purpose will cause you to establish and deepen your relationship with God, family and others.
