Scriptures that Shape Our Ministry:
Matthew 25:31-46 – “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are my members of my family, you did it to me.”
Mark 12:28-31 – “One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, ‘Which commandment is the first of all?’ Jesus answered, ‘the first is, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.”’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
