A Message from Pastor Rich
Someone once famously said, “The main thing… is to keep the main thing the main thing.” That’s a great quote, but what is the main thing? That answer comes from Jesus Himself. He was asked, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.”
That’s it; that’s the main thing; loving God. This is important because, for many, finances are the main thing. We have never asked anyone for one cent, and we never will. We began this church by the leading of the Holy Spirit and we will continue trusting that God will lead believers to supply every financial need.
Over the last 25+ years of ministry, the Holy Spirit has led thousands of believers to supply every financial need. We have every confidence the Holy Spirit will continue to lead believers to contribute to the furtherance of the Gospel through the ministry of Calvary Missions International.
We have added online giving as part of our webpage for those who want to be part of supporting what God is doing here. One thing we do ask for quite openly is your prayers. Please pray that God would continue to bless and supply every need “to the praise of the glory of His grace!”
Your servant in Christ,
Rich Jones, senior pastor
