2018 was a major milestone for us as a church as we celebrated 10 years of life-change and 10 years of God moving beyond what we could imagine in and through Freedom Church.
As we close out a decade of ministry and look to another, we are reminded that what makes Freedom Church so special is not the efforts of a few, but the sacrifice of many.
Paul writes in a letter to his friends in Philippi:
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6 (NIV)
Freedom Church, thank you for your continued partnership in the gospel. Thank you for believing in what God is doing here and for stepping out the way you do with such audacious faith and courage. Our hearts overflow with gratitude at the privilege of pastoring such incredible people and stewarding such an incredible work. We pray that as you reflect on this year, this decade and look ahead with us, that you too would be filled with confidence “that He who began a good work… will carry it to completion.”
We believe God is just getting started in us and that there is more work to be done through us. We believe with everything in us, that Freedom Church’s best days are in front of us.
We love you.
