WHO WE ARE

We invite you to join us this Sunday for worship and authentic Bible teaching from God's Word.

Pastor's Vision

Dr. Pinnock, a Bible expositor, envisions this ministry as a means by which God's people may be further equipped to fulfill the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19-20.

He believes in the concept of holistic ministry; that is to say, discipleship is an important out growth of salvation in the development of maturity in Christ.

Dr. Pinnock acknowledges a church can easily become a closed society.  Thus, his primary objective for True Light is to reach out to the alienated and the disenfranchised by making a positive impact in the lives of others.

He believes Christ can make the difference, and maintains the main purpose of the church is to positively impact the community.  His belief is in line with Christ's words found in Luke 4:18
