That humanity was created in the image of God; that he sinned and as a result, all men are born with a sin nature. (I Timothy 1:14-17)

That we are commissioned by our Savior to…”Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” We want to witness effectively in Paterson and all parts of the world. (Matthew 28:18-20)
That in accordance with the Word of God and His promises, Jesus will come again and we will be with the Lord forever. (1st Thessalonians 4:13-18)
