Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

stand by His cross

"This is the will of God which Christ both did and taught:
humility in conversation; steadfastness in faith;
modesty in words; justice in deeds;
mercy in works; discipline in morals;
inabilty to do a wrong, and ability to bear a wrong done;
to keep peace with the brethren; to love God with all our hearts;
to love Him as a Father; to fear Him as God;
to prefer nothing above Christ
(because He did not prefer anything above us);
to adhere inseparably to His love;
and to stand by His cross bravely and faithfully."
- St. Cyprian (c. 200-258)
Bishop of Carthage and Martyr
