Our Purpose

God is a gracious God. If our Church leaders prepare God’s people and the people of God sow the seeds of God’s Word into the hearts of others, God promises a harvest. Jesus said to his Disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers in his harvest field.’  –Matthew 9:37-38. During harvest time, everyone reaps what they sow. As You Are Church members take the advancement of God’s kingdom and God’s will on earth seriously, so we will not reap sparingly.  It is only Christ that unites us all under one roof. The love of God that our vibrant church family is reaping continues in numerous ways, too many to mention. Let us reap more by allowing us to become your family. Let us serve you and love you as Jesus Christ’s ambassadors. Then, teach you to do the same to others so that you may also reap the benefits of God’s harvest.
