Personal Mission Statement

First and foremost, to love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength (Mark 12:30)

  • by keeping His Kingdom foremost in my life (Matt 6:19-21,33) and remembering He is Lord of my life (1 Peter 3:15) (heart),
  • by praying (Eph 6:18) and focusing on things above (Col 3:1-2) and the salvation I have through faith in Him (Eph 2:8-9) (soul),
  • by continually meditating on God’s word to discern His will (Rom 12:2) (mind), and
  • by being strong (2 Tim 2:1) and diligent (2 Tim 2:15), and by being a doer of the word (James 1:22) (strength).

Second, to love my neighbor (Mark 12:31)

  • by being a faithful and dedicated witness (1 Cor 9:19) to non-believers, spreading the Gospel (Matt 28:18-20) with boldness (Rom 1:16), always ready to make a defense (1 Peter 3:15), and
  • by using my gifts to teach others (1 Pet 4:10) and to help encourage and strengthen their faith (1 Thess 3:2).

Third, to walk worthy (Ephesians 4:1, Phili 1:27) and be an example today (Titus 2:6-7, 12)

  • by being a good (Luke 1:6), understanding (1 Peter 3:7) and loving (Eph 5:25-30) husband
  • by bringing up my children in the Lord (Ephesians 6:4), exhorting and encouraging them (1 Thess 2:11), and
