By Growing, Showing and Going

God's vision for Ontario Free will only be realized as we come to understand our need to GROW in our own personal faith. Through that growth, all of our service to Him and in our community will be realized. We will strive to love Him more passionately, serve Him more faithfully, and know Him more intimately.


As we GROW closer to God we will be able to see the world through His eyes and love the world with His heart. Out of our own love for God, we will strive to SHOW those around us the love God has for them, so they too can experience the "Greater Life" He offers us all.


As we GROW in our relationship with God, understanding His heart for the world should motivate us to GO. We can't sit back and wait for people to come to us. We need to move outside our comfort zones to continue the ministry Christ came to earth to perform: to SEEK and save that which is lost.
