Welcome to the Church Of The Living God – Strawberry Mansion website.
Catch The Vision of Your Pastor, and Run With it!
Habakkuk 2:2-3 reads, “ And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
The Lord has spoken to me and have given me a vision for the Church of the Living God in Strawberry Mansion – a vision that exhibits and incorporates our growth and contribution of souls to the body of Christ – a vision that will engraft into the church the homeless, the hungry, the hurt, abused and misused – those who have been rejected by society because they do not fit status quo; and He intends for us to love them back to health spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and yes, financially. As I run, I intend to throw the vision into the hands of my staff of leaders and members, expecting them to have a spirit of excellence in executing the vision while they run without fear into victory.
Genesis 15:1 reads, “After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”
We have heard the Lord speak! He has validated His speech through the prophets and through the dreams of our young people. Numbers 12:6 reads, “And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.”
As we prepare to move forward into our new church, let us never forget the fact that WE DO HAVE A VISION! Without the vision we would perish. Proverbs 29:18 reads, “Where there is no vision, the people perish…”
