Gifts of Life Ministries
Mission Statement

We are establishing a Christ-centered church for the holistic care of the people of the world in a way that provides a people inclusive environment conducive to praise, worship, and spiritual growth. This church will promote the uncompromised word of God in the feeding of the hungry, healing and deliverance of the sick and oppressed, clothing the naked, welcoming the stranger, visiting the prison-bound, educating the unlearned, and loving the unloved. We will also support other ministries and organizations sharing our mission so that communities of believers are formed and transformed by the renewing of hearts and minds to the good and acceptable will of God.
