As we, the members of the Greater Maryland First Jurisdiction, move forward in support of the vision of our national church, "Globally helping men and women see themselves in the future," it is my endeavor that we continue to be witnesses by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus to a world that continues to distance itself from the "fear of The Lord."
