Security Ministry

Although we don't like to think violent acts occur within the church walls, it is something for which we are obligated to prepare.  Many types of incidents (both big & small) could happen and have happened within churches all over the country.  Church leaders have an obligation to church members, staff, and every visitor who steps inside our doors to provide a safe and peaceful environment for work and worship. No church should assume…“it won't happen here.”  This attitude contradicts the biblical principle outlined in Matthew 10:16 – “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Proactive steps are important, because "God calls us to accountability and to be good stewards, and part of that also has to do with the safety and the security of our children and the resources that have been given to us. Our churches and what we have in them belong to God, and it is our responsibility to take care of them."

Our Vision:

To help safeguard the People, Property and Gifts God has entrusted to our church and to Pray, Prepare, Prevent & Prevail.

Who We Are:   We are Ambassadors for Christ, Serving God’s People

 

Quote: “There is a time in every problem when it is big enough to see yet small enough to solve.”

    Very impressive….This is right along the lines of the vision the Lord gave me…"That we must protect his house" For in the near future the church will be under full attack…We must rear up strong young anointed men of God fully girted and armed with whole amor of God to protect his house.
