Message from the Pastor
When God called me into the ministry, he placed within me a great desire to see His people spiritually healed and delivered ( Luke 4:18). I refer to an inward healing and deliverance that can only occur through receiving the preached and taught Word of God. There is a great need in the times in which we live to teach and preach the bible as the sole authority. Jesus taught in John 8:32 that, “ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free”. My vision for the ministry is to see Christians grounded in the Word of God, maturing in their faith, and living victoriously in Christ. I envision Bible Way providing a place where the hurting, the depressed, and the confused can find love, hope, help, forgiveness, and guidance as they walk in their God-given purpose and fulfill the call God has on their lives. To accomplish this I will follow God’s commands to love, preach, teach, inspire, encourage, coach and involve all of God’s people in the vision and the mission of the church.
I invite you to join with us every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM. Our services are held at H.H. Poole Middle School located at 800 Eustace Road in Stafford, VA.
(Until further notice, we will be live streaming our services on YouTube, Sunday's @ 10 am)
