Pastor Hollins firmly believes that the Church should go beyond the walls of the sanctuary to take the soul winning, life changing, yoke destroying Word of God to a sinful world. Anything less causes us to fall short of what Jesus commands us in the Great Commission, Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:19-20).
