At Libertad, our purpose is to LOVE God--this begins in the heart, with a personal relationship with Jesus. [Mark 12:30] We strive to GROW together in fellowship, worship, prayer, and discipleship through His Word. [II Peter 3:18] And to SERVE others by encouraging one another to discover and use their gift to serve others. [Galatians 5:13]
