People are asking three questions in this world;

1. Do I Matter to God?
2. Do I Matter to You?
3. Do I Matter to Others?

We build on people, not programs. Not just “what kind of things are we trying to do”? But, “what kind of people are we trying to build”? We are less concerned about making church full of people and more concerned about making people full of God.
