Crown Financial Ministries

Sunday Bible Institute
Throughout God's Word, our Bible, God provides examples of how we are to go about doing our work for Him. Our love for God inspires us to give our very best to Him at all times. Let us always look to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit for strength and guidance in carrying forth his work to "reach, teach, win, nurture and hold God's children." The Bible is taught so that we may learn of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; that all may be saved; that the body of Christ may grow; that the building of the Kingdom of God continues until Jesus returns.
