Pastor Washington’s vision for Abiding Faith can be summed up in the following statement:
“I pray that we will worship and uplift God, and thereby grow spiritually in our discipleship and stewardship. Through our worship of God and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit we can then evangelize this world and reach out to the spiritually lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, offering them the invitation to eternal salvation and discipleship.“
