Over the last 14 years, our membership has by the grace of God grown from a paltry 84 to the current 842 members. It is our sincere prayer that the Holy Ghost of God will quicken us to baptize even more souls and to make this number grow exponentially before the glorious advent of the Lord. The 842 members do not however include some 600-700 nominal members (sabbath school members) whom we call "regular visitors" besides an approximate number of 500 - 600 children.
