Our Mission

  Our Mission  
I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.  I lay down my life for the sheep.  I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen.  I must bring them also.  They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
- John 10:14-16
