An Invitation from the Pastor

Pastor's Pen




Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Dean Read. My wife’s name is Tracie and we have been married since 1982. We have children and grandchildren, all whom we love dearly, and hope to be together with in heaven. I was called to the pastoral ministry later in my life. Yet, God called me for a purpose. My purpose is to tell about Jesus Christ and God’s love for mankind, and point sinners to the Savior.  Thus, I am inviting you to attend our church. Come and see what we teach and preach and test everything with the Bible.

The Bible teaches that Jesus came to save sinners from sin and from death. It was the greatest act of love that God could do, to send His only begotten Son to live on earth as one of us, yet without sin, and then to die on the cross for the sins of the world. And, Jesus rose from the grave and ascended to heaven to do a special work as our High Priest (Hebrews 4:14-16). He also sent the Holy Spirit to give us the experience of His love in our lives now that we may have the assurance of eternal life.

The Bible also teaches that Jesus is coming again. He is coming to redeem those who have believed in Him. Believers who have died will be redeemed from the grave, and those who are alive when He appears will be caught up together with them and with Jesus, the Father and all the holy angels and taken together to heaven (Matthew 24:30, 31).

 It is my hope that you might come to know Jesus like I know Jesus. And if you already know Him, that you might know Him better, that you may have hope to meet Him when He comes in Glory.

Come and see!
