'And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did it to me.’ - Matthew 25:40

Jesus didn't preach to hear himself speak. We take the words of Christ seriously, and aim to serve all of God's people to the best of our abilities.
