Words from our Pastor, Gus Brown

Akron Alliance Fellowship Church is all about Jesus Christ, a Savior who has worked in the lives of the people who attend our church.  Because of a relationship with Jesus Christ lives have been changed and now are part of a team called the church, the body of Christ, in service as His witnesses.  The members of our church will readily attest to the power of God in their lives.  We all will attest to the power of His redemption and that we are a people of His workmanship.  He is our sanctifying source and the only source of our salvation when we trust in Him as our personal Savior.

We can smile because of the peace we have discovered through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  The church families are successfully living out the Biblical teaching that they learn from the Word of God; as a result, they are a testimony of what can happen when ordinary people turn their lives over to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  He brings us together to be a community of Christians, impacting the lives of one another and the communities where we live.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ continue to abound in the life of our church members.  I also pray for the continued blessings for their labor of love towards the ministries of Akron Alliance Fellowship Church and for their service for Jesus Christ.

To the members of Akron Alliance Fellowship Church, thanks to everyone for the privilege you have afforded me to walk with you as a brother in Christ, and to see the wonderful work of God’s hand in shaping and molding so many lives.  We have witnessed God working in the life of this church, but this is only one of the first chapters of the story of Akron Alliance Fellowship.  We will continue to believe God for His very best as we move towards breaking ground in the near future for our new worship center.  (For more on this, visit http://futureakronalliance.blogspot.com/)  I am looking to see God do much more, and to see many more people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  We will keep loving one another, serving the Lord, and believing greater days are ahead of us because of the One we serve.

God bless you,

Pastor Gus Brown
