A Letter from Our Pastor
In Ephesians 1:18 the Apostle Paul prayed that his readers would have “the eyes of their hearts enlightened, so that they may know what is the hope to which God has called them.” This has long been my prayer for the people of Ashland. It is my desire and personal mission to see that God’s Word be widely propagated within this community. This I seek to do with the hope and expectation that God’s Spirit will convict and convert sinners and comfort and equip the saints.
