Ministry is not about ritual or routine religion but a living relationship with God.  It is not about numerical growth but spiritual growth.  It is not about programs but about people - people who are wholly focused on God, powerfully filled with the Spirit, and happily united in a community of grace; people who vibrantly exalt Christ, openly perform works of faith, accurately teach the truth, boldly proclaim the gospel in word and action, and authentically depend upon prayer.
