Given a mandate from the Lord to bring a prophetic word in "due season," Pastor Barby's heart is to encourage, motivate, and prepare the church for the coming of the Lord, assisting believers to find their place in the body of Christ. He also has a passion for souls and truly believes before the coming of the Lord there will be a great ingathering into God's Kingdom. He continually reminds the congregation to look up for the fields are already white unto harvest! (John 4:35)
Expecting the Glory of God every time they meet, the congregation is led in worship and the preaching of the Word by Pastor Barby, providing an environment where God is worshipped in Spirit and Truth and where He is continually honored and revealed.
