|Our ministry themes is THRiVE. It's the idea that God designed us to flourish for His glory. |
Jesus said in John 15, "This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples... I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last." Jesus also said in John 10:10, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
Our passion as a ministry is to THRiVE in such Godly ways that it brings honor & glory to our amazing God. And our hope is that people will see the fruit & want to taste and see how good God is.
Read about GTD's 6 Core Priorities that cause us to THRiVE.

|The word "salvation" literally means wholeness or to be made whole. Jesus came to fill the God-sized hole in our soul. If you would like to get things right with God and experience that wholeness then all you need to do is place your faith in Jesus Christ alone. One way to place your faith in Jesus is by praying a simple prayer from your heart like this: "Dear God, I confess that I am separated from You. I have missed the mark. I have sinned against You. I ask you to forgive me of all the wrong things I have done. Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross for my salvation so that I can be made whole. I ask You to come into my heart and to be my Savior and the Lord of my life. From this day forward I commit my life to following You." If you sincerely placed your faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ then you just became a new Christian. The Bible says that you are now born again spiritually. Like any newborn you need to grow. Start reading the Bible & find a great church... your spiritual adventure has just begun! Please let us know about it. We want to celebrate with you!|
