Scripture “Jesus said unto him, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”Matthew 22:37-39 Mission Statement “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, “Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked and ye clothed me: I was sick and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” Matthew 25:34-37 Jesus reminds them that inasmuch as ye have cared for, served, loved the least among you, you have cared for, served, and loved me. St. Paul’s deacons are to personify Christian love: Worship God in spirit and truth; pray for wisdom; support the Pastor and his vision for a loving church; assist the Pastor with the two ordinances of the church – Baptism and Communion; edify the saints in your assigned ministry and every other church ministry; visit the sick and shut-ins, and administer the benevolence funds of the church responsibly; encourage youth and set a Christian example before them; tithe to the church one’s time, talent and substance; winning souls for Christ at home, on the job, and in the wider community; and grown spiritually, always striving to glorify God.
