No GOATs Here

No GOATs Here

September 19, 2021 | Pastor Gary James

Are you competitive? Do you aim to be the greatest? Our culture, identity, and self-worth are often driven by being the greatest.  Join us today as Pastor James discusses how following Jesus will not lead you to success in being the greatest; it will lead you to service. Through service the true greatness of the Gospel can be seen. It is about love, self-giving, and God working through you to achieve the ultimate greatness.
