What is your vision for the future of the Better Way Ministry?
“My vision for Better Way is for us to live up to the name God has given us and continue to progress in every area of ministry. Our goal is for us to be a model church that mirrors the word of God.”

The mission of the church is, in reality, a continuation of Christ’s early ministry- John 14:12. Jesus viewed that redeeming men’s souls was His whole purpose for coming to the earth. “For the Son of Man has come to save that which is lost.” Matthew 18:11 And in turn, He imparted this same objective to His disciples. He said unto them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19.
God originally made man for His pleasure, to enjoy his fellowship and worship. Revelation 4:11; John 4:23. Thus, a part of the Lord’s purpose of the church, besides bringing people to God, is to gather His people together and facilitate a corporate environment of worship, to express our love toward Him and one another. Jesus described these as the two highest ideals of Christianity. ” And you shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind, and with all your strength. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:30-31.
