Mike’s preaching philosophy:
Paul advised Timothy to preach the word (2 Timothy 4:1-2), and that is what I seek to do. The goal of that effort is love from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith (1 Timothy 1:5). Jesus said that the greatest commandment was to love God and love our neighbor (Matthew 22:34-40). It is my desire to help us have a church family atmosphere with love for our Lord and for one another. We are children of God, and brothers and sisters in Christ. We are family.
