A Word About Maranatha Bible Church

I am so grateful to the Lord for the privilege of ministering with this body of believers. It is a joy to be part of a church where the people love the Word of God, love the Lord Jesus Christ, and love each other. Without a doubt, I am more like Christ because of the influence of this body in my life. I look forward to many years of ministry at MBC as we together seek to become conformed to the image of our Savior.
